Spaces Between The Words

Reading was his sanctuary
From noise
From worry
From fear
He could curl up in the tiny spaces
Tucked between the words and pages
Of a book
Dream with the characters
Run with the plot
Imagine the illusions.

In his mind
The outside world
With its annoyances 
Loud talk
Racing engines
Flying jets 
Artificial deadlines
Could run without him.
