She knew all there was to know
about boxes,
lessons learned on the inside,
lessons that taught being trapped within one
was liable to take your life
over time.

When she found her true self
she escaped her box,
never surmising
those she'd meet
would be eager to cram her back inside,
if she let them.

About Christina Anne Hawthorne

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
