Poetry Corner: “A Different World”

Poetry Corner: A Different World
Perrone, Sara

The stories whisk me to a world beyond
The moon or sea, the possibilities
Between us, there’s an unbreakable bond
Attachment to them gains them sympathies

They bring me comfort nothing else can match
A place I feel accepted, and not judged
By characters whom I have grown attached
To leave this world with folks filled with begrudge

At night, snug in bed, by the glow of light
Words lift me to Hogwarts or Middle Earth
Pages flutter like a butterfly in flight
I drift on elsewhere guided by true north

But then the pages close, back to the “real” world
Solo, I wait to return to my dream world.

About the Contributor
Keira Burress, Student Writer
My name is Keira Burress. I’m a freshman and it’s my first year writing for The Gull. I mostly write book review articles in the hopes of inspiring people to read more. I love my two German Shepherds. When I’m not spending time with them, I can be found reading or writing. One day I hope to be a bestselling author of fictional books where people can find comfort in my stories like how I’ve found comfort in others.
