Amore Vincit Omnia


Aleah Montoya

Almost an adult,
but still a
child. Inside my
dark imagination
everything is based on
fear. Fear of people
going away, Fear of my
hiding place being discovered. My
imagination plays cruel
jokes on me, It isn’t
kind, but
love saves
me. In my imagination, love means
no
one leaves me,
Passion exists in
quiet stillness. We can be
renegades in my imagination. We can
silently run away and slip into
time, Where
unusual unions end in
victory, and those
who harbored doubt, those
xanthippe’s and spectators who hate me and
you, they will disappear, and their
zabernisms will make us strong.
