Ink Stain This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Black and white
Their contrast is too high, like you and I
You are my room of white, where I cannot hide.
You force out the sins I've buried inside.
All the things I wish would disappear,
You make them flow from the hole in my heart.
You make everything pour out.
It all seems like a dream.
Even that endless pain
Seems so surreal to me.
You are a room of white

And I am your black mistake.
You are a sheet of paper

And I am your ink stain.
You are a blanket of snow

And I am your muddy patches.
I am all that could ever be wrong with you!
but you don't mind.
You're an ink stain too, even if you are pure to me
Because you're only human, you are bound to pour ink
Upon that fresh white sheet.
Yet, it is because you are human, you are pure to me
I am your black mistake, your ink stain, your muddy patches
And yet, you loved me.
