Wrapped up in paper,
soaked with printer ink,
I got lost somewhere between the page’s of a book.

Soon I can hear the voices,
the words coming
alive inside my head.

Camalot and its knights
setting at the round table.
Dragons breathing fire.
Vampires turning into bats,
and fairies dancing in the moonlight drink nector and bear.

All this began after I opened the door by reading a book.

That’s all it took
for words to speak,
for reality to
become fairytails
and bunny trails.

I was Alice falling down
the rabbithole.
