  1. This is the first thing I thought of when I read this prompt. It could just be me (in which case, this would be really awkward) but does this happen with anyone else?

    She never looked like that!
    How movies change
    What our minds create
    When we read a book
    Our imaginations flow
    And form the character
    We want to see
    Yet more often than not
    Movies create
    An entirely different person
    Than that we imagine
    Unless we see
    The movie first

  2. – Revised my poem to fit this prompt

    She never looked liked that before.

    Her chest is filled,
    With a heavy sense of warmth.
    Not with the desire of lust,
    But with the passion of fire.

    Her chest feels light,
    With a delighted sense of intrigue.
    Not intrigue to learn more,
    But with a wanting of the next day.

    Her chest feels safe,
    More than just bones protecting her.
    Not protecting her from danger,
    But protecting her from the things that scare her.

    Her chest glows bright,
    Finally happy to be filled with light.
    Not because she did anything,
    But because he is her live-wire.
