Sanctuary

A book is a sedative,

Putting my troubled mind to sleep.

It takes me right out of chaos,

To another world, so blissfully deep

A book is a haven,

From the stormy seas of contention,

Where my vessel of emotions can wait,

Till sunshine breaks through the clouds of tension.

A book is a secret door,

To a world of tremendous knowledge and beauty,

Where the mind can live and grow and flourish,

Till dragged back by the collar, to duty!

A book is my best friend,

Who in moments of agony holds my hand.

A source of comfort and bittersweet joy;

My stout shield in a cruel and merciless land.

  1. i love this because i know that the books i read make me go to another world, where my imagination takes over and i can escape real life for a little bit as i am completely absorbed in my book, in my land. a book never lets you down and when it is a good book it makes you feel like best friends as you know everything about the book when you finish :)
    keep smiling

    • I’m glad you could identify with it. :) Books are the best companions, indeed! They’ve rescued me from many a sordid moment.
