A Confession of Love for Times New Roman

I love you,

Times New Roman.


I love seeing you strewn across my page.

I love typing you into existence.

And I love reading you most of all.


There was a time,

Times New Roman,

When I could not bear the thought of you.


But as I found myself,

I found myself looking at you.

Time and Time again.


You’ve been with me all my life;

Required for every essay.

And I find myself using you

As my only form of solace.


In a Time where Times are ever-changing,

Yet every morning feels the same,

A constant is you,

Times New Roman.


How odd it must seem to love a font,

But I think it’s the experience of it all.

And when I try to imagine my future,

Of myself engulfed in words and books,

I think of you,

Times New Roman.


And I find hope in your consistency,

And I love you,

Times New Roman.
