You taught me
that fictional characters are living.
In the rivets of our imagination,
In the fears that consume us,
In the identity we claim daily,
and the construction of a story
we reflect our own perceptions,
the fictional characters are us.
But the ability to embrace
all of their flaws
to take ownership in “if it were me”,
that is true artistry.
Thank you for teaching us.
You will never be forgotten.
