Inside the Mind of Isadora

Friday Fictioneers – I Love You


Standing here, I’m wrapped in your woodsy pulp scent. 

You captivate me with your unique shape.

You fit in my hands like a glove wraps around fingers. 

Leather or cardboard bound, your composition is perfection.

Every second I’m with you is like an unknown paradise. 

You fulfill my every need and want. 

With you, I am alive.

 I can be here or anywhere.

 If I’m around the world, you are with me. 

Your words wander through my mind.

You create memories on every page.

 I want to remember them forever.

For you, my love will never die.

I Love You

Author: Inside the Mind of Isadora

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

    • I’ve had a love affair with words since I discovered books in the library. I can’t imagine not being able to hold a book. There are so many wonders in each and every one. Thank you for your steallar comment, Jilly. I apologize for the delay in responding to your comment. I’ve had no internet service. A big shock to learn how much it’s needed.
