True love’s kiss, first experienced through written words.
First of all kinds memorialized in the pages between her fingers.
At home with the ink stained paper.
A quiet girl who had loud mind.
Calmed by the words of poetry.
A security blanket drafted from words.
A little girl who learned mortality through Keats.
Listened to the finality of his existence.
Learned of sorrow.
A little Girl who learned of adventure through Coldridge.
Learned of consequences a moral tale.
Learned the price of living alone and unaided.
Learned how to appreciate others much more.
A little girl who learned of beauty from Shakespeare.
Sonnets of love and desire filled her heart.
Of being yourself in the face of love.
A little girl who learned of darkness through Poe.
The world is not always a happy or fair place.
Evil can be disguised in many forms.
Lessons learned through words.
Growing up on poetry.
