Books

Books are my escape 
And if you’re reading this
I think they’re yours too 
And that also means 
You’ve dealt with the people 
Who ask: how? 
You wanna know what I always tell them?
In books I find love 
In them is hope 
There are dreams 
And solutions 
To all of this fucked up reality 
I’m not hated in a book 
I can find friends in the words 
I know I’m never truly alone 
And where everything hurts 
In real life 
Where I can’t stop 
Or change 
Or fix a damn thing 
In a book it only takes the turning of a page
