Words swim around me,
Forming a world of fantasy.
I read each sentence twice,
Trying to make sense of it all.
As the plot intensifies, sweat starts to run.
I get nervous, thinking, “what will happen?”
Then, it cools like the breeze on a summer day, and I relax.
Finally, I read the last sentence and fall back into reality.
The imaginary world of wonder is closed,
And a different one surrounds me.
A cold, miserable stone.
A horrid place compared to my world of fantasy.
