Bruises This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Bruises
Blue as the sea
Drowning my heart in your words
Slapping the smile off my face
Like the waves on the shore
Of my world

Your sinister grin
Seeping into my dreams
Like the sand sifting through
Your fingers
And I wonder
Why am I here?
