Lyrical Sunday - Books

Within the pages

Within the pages, I have lived
Many lives that Fate denied.
A damsel, dragon, witch,
A hunter, thief, girl-on-fire.
Castaway, lived in a tree,
Castle, mansion and slums.
I have hidden in cupboards and towers
And boarded in schools of paper,
I have died a hundred deaths, witnessed more,
Was reborn into as many new,as I could read.

Within the pages, I have learnt
About my life, and those of others
who have joined me as we walked
within the novels I have travelled.
