jar of honey This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

a jar of honey,
left open on the table,
to drip and drizzle down the wall,
waiting for the jar to break and fall
a beating heart,
left open in my chest,
to bleed and spill down the wall,
waiting for it to break and fall,
laying shattered,
a jar of honey,
and my heart,
on the floor …
there is no more.
