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

It's kind of like picking petals off a flower
You love him
Then you don't
Then you're not sure
Now you wish you never knew him
Then it starts all over again on a different flower
One with more petals
More thoughts
You're sick of it
The flowers are an endless cycle
But winter's just around the corner

This poem is bautifully written. My favorite line was when you said winters around the corner it just put a nice twist on it. Grat job!
