L'appel Du Vide This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Today the clouds
Envelop me,
(a weightless veil

that clings to my lungs)
Whispering sweet lullabies
(intoxicating and sweet)

Today the air
Infests me,
(buzzing little bugs

creeping across my skin)
Conquering my body
(schizophrenic revival)

Today the air
Drowns me,
(a kind of dying

that brings you back to life)
Soaking me to the soul
(cleansing my withered existence)

Absolutely worthing of all praise and publication. The title captured my attention (titles should do that). Then, your words—tantalizing from start to end—AND AH! DELICIOUS—enveloped me. I love the way you used the parantheses all over the poem. 5/5
