Sentiment of the Century This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
That white summer dress deflated me.
washed away my words
Eden eyes and Lebanon lips hit me
like a tsunami.
Her tides flow between my ribs
and rinse my heart valves.
Fixation on quartz cheeks accented by
rose-petal blush and ivory skin.
She expels riptides from her lungs
and the undertow will always keep me
in the ocean.
A seashell veil hides her from me.

This poem is very interesting and has a unique style. I like it because it uses great imagery and figurative language.
