The Love Constitution This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
Forgive and forget.
I promise not to forget you.
In the rustling of the leaves
I hear a song for two:

It’s coming,
the conclusion,
we can hear it from afar.
A constitution,
resolution,
confusion’s door was left ajar.
A lady,
a mission,
bringing closure to us all.
We worry and we scurry
when coldness comes in for a brawl.
A contusion.
An illusion.
The pictures on your wall.
You remember,
mid-November,
we tried but we failed.
But when the spring came
and cleared up our same
it brought closure to us all.
A collision.
A decision.
A fly on the wall.

This poem is great! If you would add more to it or write one like this and make it more detailed (such as adding a little more about the fall, when  I assume this all began, and more on the winter, or the hard times. Then, finish it off with more simili's with Spring) it will be perfect.

This reminded me of a song lyric: "when the spring arrived, we were taken by surprise when the flows under our feet bled into the sea, and nothing was left of you and me."

I really love this poem. I loved how you wrote it, and how it took the reader through an entire year. You had me hooked at the first stanza. (:

this is so wonderful, i decided to find a quote for u:"There is no pain you are receding A distant ship, smoke on the horizon. You are only coming through in waves. Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying. When I was a child I had a fever My hands felt just like two balloons. Now I've got that feeling once again I can't explain you would not understand This is not how I am. I have become comfortably numb. "
- Pink Floyd
