houdini's girl This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

she's got demons that hide in her shadow
when the sun's not out
they're always there
watching
waiting
breathing

there are a million smoky lies in
her glassy eyes
the light hits her eyes in a new way
and you realize that she's
nothing but an illusion
smoke and mirrors
she's a trick of the light
no
a trick on light

those demons are smart
and they know how to play dirty
they'll trick you
mislead you
make you believe that they're something
other than what they really are

light does that too, you know
tricks you
makes you feel safe
lies to you

because not everything that's pretty
is right
