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

every day i pass that crack on the stairs
i never knew it could be so dangerous
it was like you were walking and walking and suddenly
they ran out
from underneath you
they ran
from you
i put your picture on the stairs and i never let anyone touch it
i still hear the sound of your head hitting the floor
the sound of your life snap like the wings of a butterfly
snapped and broken to pieces
my heart is broken to pieces
what was the palace we built up is in ruins
that reside in the empty cavity of my chest
where my heart used to be
before you died and took it with you

your eyes were enchanted
every day when you looked at me
you looked at me and i became enchanted
you were my life
without you, i am dead too
music plays in the background
all the time
when i turn it off
i hear your voice
like whispers in my ears
and it's too painful
