The Journal

I couldn’t afford it,

but this journal

was one of a kind.

And I swear it had my name on it.

Once home, I stared at the cover,

opened it up

with pen in hand...

and froze.

My words wouldn’t come

and the ink wouldn’t run

because I did not dare mar

its perfection.

I'm making myself begin to use them, otherwise they will just go to waste. Thanks for giving this a read.

I love the notebooks, but... I have forced myself to use one of my favorites now.
Thanks so much for reading, Compass Girl.
