I Opened Up A Book

I opened up a book

And got lost in a perfect world

This world didn’t judge me

This world didn’t keep secrets

 .

It didn’t matter what they looked like

They were all beautiful to me

And I was beautiful to them

I didn’t have to hide

 .

When the book came to an end

And I read those final words

I felt sad

But also better than before

 .

Because, for a while, I escaped

Into a world that was beautiful

And dark and complex and tragic

And it accepted that I was, too.
