Believing in Books

The dragons aren’t flying
And the animals aren’t talking
Rainbows aren’t swirling
And I’m sitting in my chair
Lucid and fully awake
I have returned to my body
From a world of infinite possibilities
Magic with fairies and touching the sun
Coming back to life after death
And saving the world from apocalypse
Courtesy of many liars with paper and pen
I have done it all and been everywhere
And when I return to this Earth
I miss my new friends
Hope and belief in imagination being reality
Folded neatly between the covers
Of the most special books
Leaving me to wonder if maybe
There is a slight possibility
They could be pulled from the pages
And into life
They just require faith

    1. Hi Linda. Yes it is. I am blown away that you saw that and sooooo very happy. This kind of validation helps so much when suffering from impostor syndrome and wondering if I should carry on writing.
      It means the world that you noticed and reached out. Thank you.
      Have an amazing day!

      1. Wow, congrats. That’s brilliant! I loved my short story last month and held a glimmer of hope that I’d at least be longlisted. Maybe one day I’ll get there. Well done again ❤❤

      2. I am intimately acquainted with that let down when I thought a story was good enough. It will come. I have been fortunate enough to be shortlisted a few years ago and had my story shared on the site. Aiming to do that again. I’m learning to just keep at it.
        Thanks. I appreciate it. ❤
