she fell in love with words one day

she fell in love with words one day


she fell in love
with words one day

although that isn't entirely true
because she had always been in love

with words

something she had inherited
from her parents
like her earlobes
or the color of her eyes

but one day
she felt that love of words
in her center
deep in her middle

where words spoke to her womb
calling to her sickness
not a hospital but a library

or a bookstore
where the smell of coffee
and the taste of ink
were the perfect blend
of bitterness to calm her

a soul seeking the soothing scent of
words

she fell in love
with words one day

and he could see it
in the tilt of her head
while her eyes followed
the words flowing before her
