The Pagemaster's Journey

The Pagemaster's Journey

As my finger skims across the page,

I cross the surface into another realm,

The worlds flashing before my eyes,

A journey that only exists in my mind.

The world before me

Makes my soul long to be there myself,

With all the magic and friends

A younger me could ever wish for.

It is the people I follow,

Cheer for, mourn with,

That I seek to be with,

To share their mighty adventures

In their fantastical world,

Transfixed as my fingers

Hover over the page...

And when it's over,

I sit in silence,

My mind wrenched to the present,

But can never take the same journey again—

A second time feels like

Looking at a photo album

From a family vacation.

And so I search on

For the next adventure,

Holding my memories

Of that amazing world

Close to my heart,

As well as the pages that bind them.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
