FICTIONAL IMPRISONMENT
by Pie


Books are
A break
A prison
An escape
That confines
Deliriousinsane
Ramblings
That become the
Reality.
People
Made up
Become
Real
And you care
Even when you're trying
Not to.
Traveling
To places beyond
Imagination
That remind you of
Home
Which is just
Where you
Don't want to
Be.
They say you can
Control
A book
By closing
The pages
Into themselves
And locking it
Away
In a musty room
Full of radical
Ideas
That won't be
Contained.
They linger
And haunt
Jailing
The very minds
That want to relieve
Themselves
Of emotion
And just
Escape.
But maybe,
The true
Freedom
Is not in the
Separation
From the mind
But the
Melding
Of fiction
Into
Truth
That won't ever
Go Away.
Books
Once read
Can not be
Ignored
Abused
Disbanded
Neglected
or
Forgotten.
But they
Have already
Forgotten
Controlled
Touched
Redefined
and
Molded
You.
So the Human
Does not rule
Over
The book.
The Book
Rules over
The human.
