“Why do you write?”she asked
I write because it is how I wished I lived.
Carelessly falling in love. Obsessively obedient to my heart.
A damsel who saves herself, a hero who asks for help.
A human animal that becomes a poem,
A love that never dies,
A kiss that never ends,
A promise forever kept,
A penetration greater than sex,
“Is this why you write about me so often?”
