Sucked in by the box

By the strike of a button I am absorbed
Running with the werewolves
Attacking with vampires
Casting spells with witches
Falling in love with the lead
Hating and despising the villain
My heart rattled and upset
The good changed to bad
Tears rolling down my cheeks
Sitting for hours immersed in fantasy
Giving thought to what will be next
Trying to wish the story direction
Escaping to an alternate world
Avoiding the troubles of my own
Sad when it has ended
For nothing in my life has changed
Except a stronger yearning
To permanently depart to mystery land.
