This is a short piece I wrote for my English AP class meant to describe our favorite thing.

It began with the initial leap.

The opening of the novel

and turning of the pages

that sent me tumbling from reality

into the great unknown.

I plunged deep beneath the surface

of eloquent descriptions and witty dialogue

that were caught between the must and stains

of timeless endeavors.

Suspense pulled me upwards,

so that I could know the solution.

But once the last page was through,

the depths where my thoughts had reigned

seemed more inviting.

This reality seems so jarring,

an unpleasant ray of light.

But my senses adjust,

refreshed  by the plunge,

and changed by the journey.

The End
