Lost in a Book, A Poem

The fairies fly by

The villains all die


The girl becomes princess

The problems become past-tense


The future shines bright

The darkness no longer hides in plain sight


The damsel in distress is saved

The girl’s path well paved


Her long locks flow in the wind

The flashing smiles all pinned


If only our life was so simple as theirs

But they live in a world where nobody stares


They have perfect endings

While we end up pretending


The story as good as this one

Lost for hours until the chapters are finally done
