Paper World

She sat there for hours With a book in her hand. Her thoughts were as tall as towers, In her mind she visited those lands She reads of dragons and fairies And of inspiring heroes She learns about ancient revolutionaries And the Beast’s rose. Her heart beats faster As the climax grows near. She’s oblivious to the world The book is all she can hear The words slither off the pages And collected themselves inside her mind. She’s no longer on this earth, But in this strange paper world That’s far from the ground. E.B
