  • Heartbreak

    Nineteen year old actor living and working in Los Angeles. I never force a poem; I write when I find inspiration during my day-to-day life lving in this vibrant city. As someone who is caught somewhere between boy and man, my poem offers a sensitive take on how young people may handle losing someone they love, in whatever way that may be. The poem combines elements of naivety and longing, yet also thoughtfulness and composure, presenting to its reader an idea that the subject, whomever he or she be, is an old soul in a young body.
