Poetry Friday: I Mean This in the Kindest Possible Way (But) by Emily Wing Smith

I Mean This in the Kindest Possible Way (But)
You took me with you when you left
I can't forgive you for that
(While I'm still here)

- from The Way He Lived by Emily Wing Smith

Reprinted with permission from the author. Thank you!

The Way He Lived, which is coming out in November 2008, is a full-length YA novel, not a verse novel. This particular piece is written by one of the main characters.

Discover Emily's definition of "hope."
