Written Worlds

I wonder how one can live in two worlds

I pretend to speak, to grow, to live in one

I want to share it with the other


I hear songs of my own imagining

I see faces I have created

I feel their joy, freedom


I am imaginative, I am afraid

I try to share my little, written world

I touch the keyboard, fingers fly

I cry that I have limits

I worry I can’t express it


I understand they do not live

I say they live in my heart

I hope they will live in the hearts of others

I dream they will live
