Exciting or sad, through heartbreaks
storytelling is how I shape my world.
It’s how I set up boundaries, keep my privacy,
share my heart, grow intimate or apart.
It’s just not the same online, where
my stories, poems-in-the-making
are accessible to everyone—
don’t you find?
This poem is about the power of personal presence; the things that come alive in us when we meet together, the new things that take shape and come into the world. Something to preserve in this season of our Time Apart.
