Fiction Beats Non-Fiction in Free Verse

I want to be entertianed

I need the escape.

Reality is to harsh and not very friendly.

I need the escape.

I crave the illusions.

That live in my head.

I want to read stories,

Of how things could be.

I want to read stories that brighten my day.

That make me smile

And wonder what if…

I want to read stories.

I need the escape.
