Literally Me

I am a creature created by narrative.

Every time I emerge from the pages of a book,

I trade a small piece of my soul for a piece of theirs.

I emerge rejuvenated by heartbreak,


And happily ever after.

A fundamental renaissance. A metamorphic reincarnation

Formed in the fires of fiction

Under the pressure of imaginings, that to many

Are nothing but falsehoods.

I am the truth that reality fails to speak.

I am words made flesh.

I am the three dimensional amalgamation

Of every character who has ever spoken

From the two dimensional letters on the page.

I am a figment of a thousand imaginations.
