My Girl No More This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Broke up with her today.
We was walkin' up the stairs
like we always do.
An' I turned to her
an' said, “Baby, you can't be my girl no more.”
She said, “Why, James?”
I said real quiet-like,
“Because, baby, I need my space.”
She got real red an' said,
“But I love you.”
An' I said, “Tha's kinda weird seein' as you
ain't my girl no more.”
She looked at me real hopeful-like,
like maybe I was jokin' around with her,
the way I done before.
Then she started cryin'
tellin' me she wants me,
an' asking what she'd done wrong.
I just walked away
'cause I didn't wanna be
seen with that girl
who ain't my girl no more.
Then she tried to hug me
so I started runnin'
yellin' that she was nuts.
But now I kinda wish I hadn't
'cause I wanted to ask her
would she do my homework
one last time.
