Blue Ink in a Red Pen This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

September 15, 2014

The ink in my pen
clings to her cartridge,
refusing to come out
and play

I try to coax her down
with promises of ideas to paint
and characters to construct
but she does not budge

Ink is cursed
She knows that once her feet
glide across the page
she cannot turn back

Maybe she is afraid
of what she will become
Or maybe
I just need a new pen
