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

it's strange because i never liked the color
brown, but as i gaze into your eyes, i can't help but fall irrevocably
in love with the creamy, smooth, rich color
of mocha coffee, and i hesitate in
turning away
from you, because i don't know
if i can function completely without
the caffeine that is your eyes

This poem is so wonderful especially because she starts with saying how she doesn't like the color of his eyes but in the end admits she loves them

This poem is absolutely amazing. I can relate to it and the sentence structure really captures the quick and choppy thoughts that someone in love would really be thinking in. 100% outstanding.
