My whole life I explored through words, The ones I’d seen written or the ones I’d had heard. I thought there was nothing more to it than this, Books left a mark on my soul like a sweet kiss
Then I met dead poets and sweaty toothed men I met Forrest Gump and his old pal Jen I was taught about humor by Mrs.Doubtfire I forgot all about the life that I had lived prior,
Prior to fighting on spaceships and living in trees, Prior to constantly debating between Marvel and DC Prior to letting disney make me smile and fight back my tears Prior to horror movies introducing me to new fears
I met a life where one picture show Could take me to a place I’d never get to go This life was a life only made for me A life outside of my reality
I sang along to all the musicals and got up and danced I covered my eyes in the shining and barely even glaced I sobbed and I sobbed when jack dawson died I imagined what it would be like to have Mcfly by my side
I wished and I hoped watching Monsters Inc. And in finding nemo I never let myself think I found that sci-fi and fantasy held whole different meanings The the ones they had held in the books I was reading
Chapter by chapter or scene by scene, I finally discovered what adventure means I hung posters on my walls and bought all the clothes, From movies symbolizing my life’s highs and life’s lows. I was a true fan but I didn’t hold a favorite They were all close to my heart and I just needed to savor it
Savor this life outside of my own One that I’m lucky was ever made known Made known to me a true movie fan, Someone who will cherish them as long as they can.
