hiding in books (freeverse)


 i hide in these books

my defence against the meaningless 
that grips me, 

loneliness distorts the world, 

distance has left a hole
all reality seeps through

In the words, i found a home 
to mend the distance

Lose myself in pages for a while
waiting for you to find me

your image holds so much truth 
in my world of lies,
i cower at the sight 
yet i'm longing for your gaze  

need to get out of this house
and make this life real again
