Blank Page

And so I opened my eyes

But could not see

The words on the page

That made me want to

Put the book down and leave

Because it was too soon

It was not time

I could not leave

Because she is me

 

She may not breathe 

But she breathes fire into me

The girl in the story

That just needed a second chance 

To make it to the end of the chapter

 

And so I read

I open my mind

I finish the chapter and wake up

The story may end

But it starts again

Every time the sun rises

And I turn to a page

And see that my story 

Does not stop with The End

This poem is about: 
Me
