Amanda Leigh Morey
I live in three separate worlds.
One: a world of books,
Words jumping off the page.
I’ve gone to a summer theatre institute,
on a vampire hunt,
saved children from a burning building with Johnny, Ponyboy and Dally,
and fought Death Eaters with Harry.
Two: a world of paper and pens, pencils and art supplies,
where I can create anything my heart desires,
a fairy flying by,
a girl getting her first kiss,
a recreation of Water Lilies by Monet,
or an adopted girl growing up in the 60’s.
Three: a world of reality,
Of tests, homework, college,
money, papers, real live people,
death, destruction, and competition.
A world that I love,
but a world that forces me
to turn to my other two worlds,
so I can escape.
