Unfinished Love Confession This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Heart thumps
thudding with purpose
beating like a drum
through my rib cage
making my vision blur
my world is tilting
all because of three little words
“I love you.”
Focusing intently
on the simple task
of breathing

This poem is so sweet and yet funny because I can just imagine a cartoon character being in a blur with the phrsase "I love you" surrounding him/her until him/her falls from exhaustment of trying to breathe and stand all at once. Great job and write on Bubbles!

This poem is good granted. It reprents those sweet little feelings we all desire. But is it really love? Love comes day by day, you can never know if it is true. You can't know if their love is the same as yours, so as your heart thumps and you are short of breath remember not to put too much hope on those 3 little words... becayse they might not be true.
