A Little Magic

I am no magician
but I know a little magic.
A spell to clear my mind
when my thoughts are at their darkest.
In a quiet room,
with the tattooed flesh of trees,
I escape the warring in my head
as I begin to read.

Amongst the turning pages,
I find relief and sanctuary.
Losing myself in another's life.
Be it fantasy, memoirs, or murder mysteries.
"Once upon a time"...
And for a while, I feel free.
