Crown Me

written by: Julia R. DeStefano



It is snowing.
I need a soul that will join my soul,
trembling bells to ring out with mine,
bodies losing their loneliness once and for all
like the photographs that line albums of years' past -
hand-in-hand, cheek-to-cheek,
joined at the hip-to-hip -
comforted by the couch, the bed,
by the cherished doorway to your room
as the doorway to mine.
I've known you forever and the day
your hand found me.
My boots plunge hard into the frozen earth,
footfalls of a stubborn lioness
refusing to retract the beats of her heart
with an ear to her soul
honoring her visions -
trying to fend off the chill
gnawing at her bones
because we love each other
and life rushes through us.
Now crown me.

Julia R. DeStefano

Julia R. DeStefano hails from Boston, Massachusetts. A diarist her entire life, it was a string of failed relationships and consecutively lost joys that would result in her creation of therapeutic free verse. Unable to vocalize her truth to those around her - Julia would bring her innermost thoughts and desires to light the only way she knew how: through the written word. 'Leave Everything,' her first poetry and photography collection, was published in August 2016 and reached #11 in Poetry by Women at Amazon. Full of wit, revelation, and vulnerability, Julia’s writing teeters on the razor’s edge of reason and passion. It unapologetically challenges perceptions. At present, Julia is writing the follow-up to 'Leave Everything' - forever capturing moments and preserving them in the glistening amber of language. Look for this Red Queen atop her throne of books.
