'Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.'
― Virginia Woolf, 'A Room of One's Own'


For one heart-beat, his gaze lingers
On the tremble in her fingers
As she takes another’s arm;
And turns her head; it’s time to go.

Yet he doesn’t stop to wonder
If she loves him somewhere under
That impenetrable charm
She always wears; it suits her so.

I KNEW IT!!!!! I'm not ashamed to say that I love that show. But I gotta catch up. I'm behind. But yes, I knew it. I love this poem.

Please, say Downton Abbey inspired this? Please...I love that show. And I'm guessing Mary and Matthew is the main inspiration. I visualized everything you presented in the poem. And I find it to be relatable. I'm in love with it.
