Worlds Away

I crank the volume up,

Put on my headphones,

And hit the mute button on life.

Until the only thing that matters,

Is the beat of the music

That fills my heart and soul.


I open the book cover,

Flip to the right page,

And travel whole worlds

Without ever leaving my room,

As the words

Drown out everything else.


Pencil to paper,

Paintbrush to canvas,

And everything else fades

To black and white,

As the colors

Bloom across my vision.


I sit down at my laptop,

Hands poised above my keyboard,

Ideas overflowing,

Words rising to my lips,

Stories just beginning

And never ending.

The End
