I've Known Characters

A poem written for English class based off of "I've Known Rivers" by Langston Hughes.

I've known characters.

I've known characters from worlds that force my imagination to stretch beyond its own boundaries.

My soul has infused itself with them; they have become a part of me.

I see troubles in the distance like a funnel cloud descending.

I hear opposing armies cry out in fury.

I feel the tenderness of unrelenting love, between both friends and lovers alike.

I live the lives of thousand through yellowed pages and luminescent screens.

I've known characters.

Lovely, broken characters.

My soul has grown strong with these characters.

The End
