water: him This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By MandaLark, Melba, ID

she penned people
into metaphors,
because his name
meant water,
and he was –

stuck in a cycle
and deep like the sea,
with waves of
emotions you could
get swept away in
if you weren't careful,
dangerous –

to a point you could
drown in those
ocean eyes and
waterfall voice,
but mostly,
just crucial
to living,
because without him –

I couldn't.
