Between the pages
Love is found
Life is found
Lust is found

Book1Between the pages
Friends are found
Enemies are found
Allies are found

Between the pages
You are anyone
You can become anything
You can do wonders

Book2Between the pages of a book
Your mind goes to places new
Takes you on a journey
One impossible outside

Between the pages of a book
Heroes are found, heroines created
Dauntless in their actions
Fear – a non-existent feeling

book3Between the pages of a book
Children become greater
Greater than adults
Greater than gods

Between the pages of a book
Aliens become real
Martians become friends
Flying is easier than walking

Book4Between the pages of a book
Doughty replaces fear
Girls become princesses
Boys become princes and Knights

Between the pages of a book
New worlds are visited
Men become one with honour
Women become damsels in distress

Book5Books can take you anywhere
Books can take you to any time
Books can remove your worries
Books can help you relax

Leave reality

  1. You perfectly encapsulate the wonderful worlds of books where anything can and frequently does, with all the emotions and action…each book is indeed a heady adventure. I love this.

  2. So true Al, books are magical and can sweep you away. I am always amazed when I find someone who doesn’t read books and I do quite often. My world would be empty without them.

  3. I saw this yesterday and tried to comment from my phone but couldn’t. I loved this and so true. Magic is found in the pages for sure. I’m reblogging this if you don’t mind. Hugs A.

    • I don’t mind at all πŸ™‚ It is my most reblogged post in a long time πŸ™‚ Thank you M. I am glad you like it. I wanted to just carry on writing and writing with it.

      • I loved how your mind was traveling with this! Awesome illustrations as well A. I haven’t been checking posts much I’m running out of time in the day. But I’ll be catching up soon! πŸ™‚

          • Gosh I know it. I’m thankful for the weekend! πŸ™‚ Alex has little projects planned for us tomorrow so I better get some rest if I can. LOL Have a great weekend!

            • Cool πŸ™‚ I think I am going to take the day off visiting. Just do a couple of posts and then time for me πŸ™‚ Enjoy your weekend M

  4. Great poem. And wonderful message. As Mark from Exile on Pain Street has reminded me, I got to ditch my e-reader and go back to paper. But in either case, just keep reading.

  5. Love this! So very many great lines…too many to quote ~ “Leave Reality…Read a Book” Most definitely! Thank you so much for the Facebook shout out as well…you are #Awesome! Huge hugs! ~❀

    • It all just seemed to flow, but I needed to stop it or it would be about ten pages long lol

      So glad you like it, and you’re welcome πŸ™‚

      Thank you Christina, for the inspiration as well
