Mrs. Giancola

Junior Megan Dorman shows readers that love is complicated.

Megan Dorman, Guest Poet

It was my worst nightmare

It was full of hallucinations

We were higher than the sky

Off your love

It was nothing like I expected

It should have been full of sparks

Just listen, my heart is beating slowly

Yours is speeding up

The deeper we kiss

I’m getting sucked into a portal

Of another life

A life full of demons.

It’s like a test

It’s like a game

Tell me this isn’t real

Tell me you never loved me

I’ve always loved you

But never like this.
