winter's day This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

god you're cold,
god you're the rocks, the pits,
the way my heart is smashed to pieces by your waves & crests & successive cycles:
baby, i can't tell the difference between your frequencies
and your wavelengths, i just know that your moods exist,
i just know they're destroying my heart.
you're a cold winter's day,
you're the sea inside a smoothie frozen solid in the back rooms,
you're nothing i ever wanted, because
i know
that your freeze out is going to kill me,
& baby,
god,
you're not god, but you come pretty damn close with the way your spine
chills itself, straightens itself into something unrecognizable
& the ocean makes itself roar in your eyes
& god
baby,
you're the only one i want in those
moments.
it's cold.
you're cold.
i think i maybe love you.
