I Lose Myself


I lose myself in words of a book

Not lifting my head, no need to look

I lose myself in stories told

Reading words of stories so bold

Fantasy adventures things kids only dream

Far off lands, night time and moon beams

I lose myself to escape real life

Tension so thick, can cut it with a knife


I lose myself in words of a book

To a place I don't care how I look

No judgement passed, no constant stares

Lost in a book, I don't care

Anxieties fade, I feel relaxed

My mind unwinds, my body collapses

Comfy spot curled up in my bed

Warm under the covers, pillow under my head

Page after page, one chapter left

Feeling sleepy book on my chest

Couldn't make it to the end I did my best

        I absolutely never go anywhere without a book - great escape from: "what if the car breaks down", people I don't want to talk to, being stuck in a boring place, very unhappy so wish to be somewhere else, being with someone who never ever can into the car quickly...... and on and on.........
