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

June 3, 2016

The branches grafted onto the varying trees whispered
sour somethings into my ear.
the air pricked my skin and even though
I have wandered here for ages I am still not accustomed
to the biting cold and the never ending darkness that looms.
I wish I could call this place my home
since I spend more time here than I ever had
in that setup stage in apartment A3.
But a home is supposed to make you feel safe
and it’s impossible to feel safe in a place
that never tries to keep you alive.

This mind of mine isn’t a fair one,
and the things I’ve thought up here cannot be undone,
but I will try to fix this mind of mine,
one pillar of moonlight at a time.
