Endless Escape ~#poetry #TheMagicShop

These places were always here for him.

Worlds that offered him comfort.

Astonishing journeys that kept him alive.

The pains of reality pushes him through these doorways of wonder.

 

Here he was a voyager.

On a starship out among the stars.

Encountering unknown worlds and strange beings.

His curiosity of the universe assimilates his sadness.

 

Here he was a witness.

Unspeakable horrors surround their victims.

Things that go bump or slash in the dead of night.

The adrenaline of fear buries his anguished thoughts.

 

Here he was beyond human.

Clouds drift over his crimson cape as he flies above us.

He stops the acts of evil,  while defending the innocent.

He is gifted with an invulnerability from the power of his depression.

 

Here he is a slayer.

The eyes of a dragon hungrily gaze on his flesh.

Mountains of treasure smother the smell of brimstone.

He has an inner courage that withstands his dungeon of solitude.

 

Only the fantastic gives him serenity.

Living in opposites,  feeling wanted and loved.

Everyday pains are forgotten here.

A peace he can only have when he is here, The endless escape.
