The Book

The Book

When my visions and sounds escape
To that quiet place

And all the collisions of the day
Stray away

My body can consume the every word
For, nothing is blurred

Purporting into another adventure and land
And my mind is placed in anothers hand

The teller is my guide
With the nightlight by my side

Seeking quests to only be told
By the book that lies under my nose....
