Barbie Dolls to Tragedies This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

December 20, 2011
I don't know when it started,
when we were young and played
with Barbie dolls.
Or was it when we were outside
playing tricks on the other kids
in our neighborhood?
It might have been that time
we had our first birthday party
together, when we decided we really were twins
and two long years separated us.
It's possible the time when tragedies
struck and we felt so alone that
brought us closer.
Or when I came home with my
first broken heart and she comforted
me. But more likely, it's always
been there, just like she has and my
sister has always been my
best friend.
