The dream awaits

A different life each day
Refuge found in leather bounds
Tales of love, excitement, wonder
Trapped in aging, dusty pages
Speak to me
Alive to me
Their worlds so much
Unlike my own
Make me forget
Reality awaits

A version of myself
Recognized in every story
Heart’s desires, paths not taken
Aspirations unfulfilled
Scream at me
Beg of me
To be who I
Was meant to be
Let go of life
The dream awaits
