1. A Book

~~Beckoning
At a glance, tempted
Dare
Take the second look
Second peek
Walk slowly over
Contemplating

Ready?

It’s a new drug
New world
New addiction
Pick it up
Heart races
Pages turn
Butterflies flutter

Open
Cheeks flush
Lost
Battle raging in head
Keep going?
Stop?

Too late

Surrounded
Left is escape
Backpedal
Closed book
The end

Right is a new life
Every turn different
Every emotion exploited
Crushed
Drained

Thud!

Back to reality
Has time gone by?
Seconds
Minutes
Days

Fulfilled?
Never
