Veiling Reality

you played the hero and the god
in a false reality.
you gave me wings in stories
that didn't fly.

you taught me so many things
that were made up.
you fought creatures of violence
in your imagination.

you tore down castles and walls
that were paper.
you stole hearts and beat villains
with a deep breath.

you wrote and read and faded
to the novel in my hands.
