Books transport me to a different world
A world of fairies, elves and goblins,
Enchanted forests and magic spells.
Fire-breathing dragons and swashbuckling heroes,
Castles with turrets and damsels in distress
Smart-mouthed gumshoes and sexy vamps
Of murders and mysteries
And last man standing.
Love, romance, heartbreak and happily ever after.
Stolen kisses and coming of age
Of war and famine, pain and loss and the triumph of good over evil.
After inhabiting this world
When I step back into the real world
Fact turns out to be more intriguing than fiction
