Escaping Reality

It's the feeling that it gives me, like I can finally fly

it's the entire universe in each page I process.

It's the love at first sight and the wonderful journey that follows,

the ridiculous jokes that make me giggle.

The horrible sadness that relentlessly renders my sobs,

the closeness I feel with each fictional being.

The words blur forming images in my mind like a movie.

No longer am I reading, I'm living.

I'm in each adventure, floating in the clouds that protect me.

This is how I escape reality.
