One of my favorite poets has always been Lord Byron. The Romance Poets were part of an elaborate fantasy world that inward weaving around this time. In my fantasy world, I was not the different, Black girl that no one wanted, but the muse of poems such as these.
I lived for my reading and my writing. Although I had a very busy social life, I still enjoyed my solitude and there was plenty of that at home.
Yes, those are cows.
I was still writing to a phantom
birth mother and saving all my accomplishments to share with her. And I wrote poems to her.
