Physically Apart, Together In Heart
13-year-old Layla was sitting on her bed, relieved that the day was finally over. She was tired. Everyday, it was the same. She woke up at 6 AM, she washed up and put on her royal dress, she ate her breakfast prepared by the castle’s staff and she started her classes. The same as always. Princess etiquette, languages, history, ballroom dancing and so on and so on. And Layla was just sick of it.
Layla’s relief to all the stress had been a kind girl named Anne, who would sneak into one of the castle’s highest towers to dance.

that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.

running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
Keep in Touch!
