Teen Love

[Image description: A spread of two drawings. Both drawings are similar in design - a woman's face, painted in blue, with Amy Winehouse-esque eyeliner - however the one on the right is a lighter blue. Over the drawings is 'teen love' written in capital letters.]
Teen Love

I cried so hard
I could blow bub-
bles in my spit
my tears healed
my acne scars
my head was left
pounding, but you…
you were always
able to make
me cry then walk
away and make
lunch. While I wrote
in my bed a-
bout places i
wish I had to
