Stubborn Yet Beautiful

By Tess, age 16, Florida

Stubborn yet beautiful
waves of a golden mane whispering in my ear,
Forever I swim in your ocean eyes,
I swim in them
Yet I never lose my breath.
I'll pack my bags,
I'll never turn back
Yet I will be lost in you
Lost in budding muscles -
Slides that cascade around you.
Lost in a smile,
Lost in a kiss.

I'm turning the page,
yet you are between the lines,
You are written in blood,
You are written in hope -
careening cars
You are inscribed in tragedy,
fluttering hearts
flying away.
You are inscribed in love.

You have found me in my grave,
you have awakened me.
I can find you in the air,
I can lose you when I'm alone.
You whisper the promise of tomorrow
touching me
catching me,
You scream the lies of yesterday.

Forever I will search
until I am no longer afraid that you will leave,
Forever you will whisper
You will scream to me
That you are always going to be around.

You will scream
You will whisper.
I will be struck deaf,
Lost in my own fear.

You are inscribed in my heart
I will find you.
