She fell asleep, in a book, in a faraway land

To dream about love, the touch of his hand

She surrounded herself, in clouds and stars

Curled up in the pages, of Jupiter and Mars

But, words became blurry, no longer told tales

The nightmare began, her dreams, assailed

Lost in the binding, she fought to awaken

Unsteady hands quaked, as if being shaken

Try as she may, she remained in the dream

Until the harrowing sound of a horrid scream

Brought her back to reality, groggy, but she

Was still caught in the pages, and ever will be
