The Differences Between This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

1.
There are many spaces
Between here and where you are.
There are ships
And there are balls of yarn –
Warm glows from inside the windows
Of the houses of strangers.

I am trying to decide
Whether this plant is alive
Or dead;

And I come to no conclusions.

2.
When someone (something)
Brushes against
Your fingertips,
The shapes the dragonflies make
Are far more wonderful
Than twilight.
Because it is a strange touch,
And your fingertips
Don't know
What to think.

3.
The blankets are so cold here,
Where I am –
Oceans away,
Where the warmest glows
Are never within your reach.
The dragonflies are dying.
And I am starting to appreciate
The pinks
And the oranges
A little too much –
I think I am losing touch
With you.

not my style, but i appreciate it all the same.  losing touch does suck, thats really all I have to say about this one, it speaks an ugly truth better left unavoided.
