The pages open
And I fly
To other worlds
As words transport
Me to universes
That manifested from
The creative mind
Of a person
Who reaches across
Time so that
They can tell
Me a story.

I am taken
By the pen
That is held
In the hand
Of a person
With magical thoughts,
and I land
on a page
That shows me
That true beauty
Exists in imagination.
It tells me:
Follow the ink.

I follow paths
Of typewriter ink
And I'm teleported
Into a place
I never could've
Imagined to exist.
Not in any
Real worlds nor
The imaginary ones.
These places are
so large, developed
only by letters.

The pages open
And I soar,
Joyous, above life
As I physically
Know it as.
Traveling between imaginations
Of different writers
Who create characters
That speak and
Befriend me as
I open the
Book, and take
A leap of faith
And they tell
Me a story.
