Google, Can’t You Mend My Broken Heart? This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Google, I've heard you've got all
the answers
Google, You knew that Kellie had the
symptoms for the measles
Google, You knew that I'd need two cups
of sugar for my cake
Google, You never told me you didn't know how to fix my broken heart
Google, You knew I was sick when I said, “Sneezing and Headache”
Google, You know that the square of -16 is 4i.
Google, Didn't you know he'd send me
spiraling down a never-ending road of pain and turmoil?
Didn't you know it would happen last time?
Didn't you know it would happen again?

Google, They've told you have all the answers
Google, Answer my question:
Google, How do you mend a broken heart?
Google, Where do they sell bandages for
the soul?
Google, Will I ever be me again?
Will I ever be me without him?

Google, You promised me that you had
all the answers
Google, Why won't you answer me?
Don't you see I'm on page 10 and –
Google, You still haven't answered
my question
Google, I'm broken
Google, Can't you fix me?
Google, I'm hurting
Google, Can't you mend my broken heart?

I really like the concept of this poem :) Google can answer all the facts in the world but it can't solve emotional problems when we turn to it for help... Good job; you deserve the editors choice!

you're very welcome - I totally understand how good it feels when someone compliments you work so, if I see stuff I like, I always try to let the writer know
