my heart races

as I gaze at the front cover.

bold lettering, garish colours

titles reminiscent of death.

enticing, hypnotic

persuading me to buy.

pages unopened

pristine and unread

like a secret to be shared.

on my journey home

I begin to read

already lost in the characters

transported to another world

where violence and hatred reign.

I too can live those adventures

vicariously, secure in my world

immune from the stabbings

within the kevlar vest of my mind
