Untitled (In Your Favor) This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

I only wanted one thing,
a simple five-letter word,


I’m sick of being just a friend.

To you the title was
pointless and unnecessary.
But to me it meant


Time has passed,
and nothing has changed.


Is how we remain.

Hahaha WOW! is all i can say about this piece. It's actually very good. You described a simple (yet sometimes emotionally taxing) situation beautifully.
I would assume that you are talking about a lover in this piece? If so, I think you caught how alot of people feel quite often. I, myself, was in a "no-title 'relationship'" for a long time.
Couldn't have said it better myself. Great, great job.
