Lost Thoughts

 I lost myself inside the book
Turning pages as I take a look
For the real me has seized to exist
Transformation forms making a list

I lost myself in the lines
Got caught up with all the rhymes
Time and place runs in one line
Is it someones life or mine

If I am lost can I be found
Can this be completely unwound
Can I turn back to my former self
Or did that person get put on a shelf

I looked but could not find
In the book that seemed to bind
Facts or fiction became the same
Is that me or am I to blame

Or is that the other half of me
One that you only glimpse and see
Did I change over the course of time
Leaving the former half behind
