WRITING IS MAGIC, DON'T YOU AGREE...?

Life between words

Images between

Printed sentences

Haunting the depths

Of your cavernous mind

Come alive

Vividly they spin tales of

Mystery

Suspense

Adventure

Romance

Heartbreak

Chaos

Triumph

Pages fold and warp

Crinkling into fantasies

Beyond your limits of thinking

It threatens to play

With your emotions

They make you angry

They make you laugh

They make you weep

Books become reality

Inside your head

Mystery

Suspense

Adventure

Romance

Heartbreak

Chaos

Triumph

Become your haunting companions

Soon, your breathing in letters

Your weeping ink

Your laughing is a page break

Between reality

And your imagination

Your world is your conscience

You speak in a language of silence

That only imagination can voice

You are the creator

You are the mastermind

You are the puppeteer

Mystery

Suspense

Adventure

Romance

Heartbreak

Chaos

Triumph

Are your strings

The reader is your puppet

Meddling with emotions

Your power lurks

Between yellowing pages

You make them angry

You make them laugh

You make them weep

Writing is magic, don't you agree?
