Fiction

I spend
so much time
in these words
that it’s
the world
that starts to
sounds like
fiction,
and it’s the
voices in
my head
that I
listen to.
And they
tell me to
stay here.

  16. “I have lived a thousand lives and I’ve loved a thousand loves. I’ve walked on distant worlds and seen the end of time. Because I read.” –George R.R. Martin

    And somehow it’s always better than the real one where we clean up cat puke and drag comforters to the laundromat. ..

  17. I think I’d rather stay in one of my alternate worlds with the voices, ha ha. It is true that today’s real world seems like fantasy, dark fantasy.
