A World Made of Words


the girl loved the whole world

she loved everything about it

even the parts that were not nice

she loved it and she wrote it all down so she would be sure not to forget what it was about the whole thing that she found so beautiful and compelling

but after a while everything was covered up with words and she remembered the words and that she had written them but she was less sure about the things themselves and what she had loved about them

when the rains came and washed away her words it was a relief

but she loved the world a little less afterward
