Longing for People I’ve Yet to Meet

Tangled – Kristen Hardy
Ava Kate Wall

My happiness exists within the people that lie between reality and fiction.

I’ve marveled at them since I was a kid, 

often wishing to meet them in my dreams.

They became a family of fighters,

one I’ve always considered my own.

But what does it feel like to be heard by them? 

To be loved by them?

I do not know.

but oh, do I want to learn.
