The Importance Of A Blank Piece Of Paper
A blank piece of paper was the most comforting place in the world for her; it signified freedom, control, the ability to be exactly who she was, who she is, who she will always be. A blank piece of paper could not fight her, tear her apart, or skew the truth. A blank piece of paper could not steal the truth from her, it could not reach across the screen and tear the tendons in her arm. A blank piece of paper could not scream at her until she had to lock herself in a bathroom for four hours, letting the cool of the concrete walls sink into her bare skin. A blank of piece paper could not judge her, criticize her, wish she was something else.
In the same token, a blank piece of paper could not congratulate her, praise her, raise her up. A blank piece of paper could not commend her on her accomplishments, recognize her influence in the world. A blank piece of paper could not embellish, exaggerate, put medals around her neck. A blank piece of paper was neutral ground. It was a place she could go to find relief, honesty, herself. She could not hide, embellish or tear down because a blank piece of paper would always reflect exactly who she was, who she is, who she will always be.
