But You Didn’t This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
I took a slice of moon and put it my hair
But you didn’t say
I glowed.
I scattered the stars in my eyes,
But you didn’t say
I shone.
I splashed the blue ocean water on my face,
But you didn’t say
I glistened.
I told you “I love you” yesterday,
But you didn’t even
listen.
