I consume stories to escape.

To not be consumed by the shadows.

To stop myself from constantly reacting.

To keep from destroying myself.

I consume stories to escape.

To keep the demons at bay.

To keep my already broken heart

from breaking even more.

I consume stories to escape.

To keep from remembering

the challenges that constantly plague me.

To feel normal

in a society

that doesn’t view me as such.

To be normal

in a society

that views me more like a problem or liability

than a person.

To be normal

in a society

that offers me less than what I deserve.

I consume stories to escape.

To enter worlds

where I don’t have to think

about any of this.

Where I don’t have to think

about myself.

I consume stories to escape,

so that when it all goes to hell,

I am not here.
