Love/Hate Relationship

by Mimi   Dec 2, 2020


The synopsis looked good
The cover looked nice
You opened the book
And began a new life
You found a new home
You met some new friends
You kept on reading
Hoping it would never end
You danced through the pages
You sang out the words
You felt all their joy
And all their pain and hurt
The pages cut your fingers
And the words cut your heart
Like the author had a knife
And was tearing your soul apart
You laughed with the characters
And with them, you cried
You fell in love with them, too
But with them, you died
And when the book reached its end
And your broken heart couldn't heal
You suddenly realized that
None of it's real
