First Heartbreak This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

February 12, 2018

Ink blot tears stain my white blouse.
Mascara drips, eyeliner smudges.
The heat of embarrassment sears my cheeks,
interrupted only by the cool trail of tears.
A friend wipes away the black river beneath my eyes,
she says “it will all be okay...” I don't know if I believe her.
A shudder runs through my body,
caused by this life-shattering catastrophe: 
first heartbreak.
A bitter end to all first loves.
