Lost In A Book

Written By Arwa Rampurawala (Grade 8)

As the letters on the pages form words,
As my eyes begin to register,
I’m transported to a land far, far away,
Unaware of my current surroundings,
I start to explore the land,
Turning the pages, tucking a stray hair strand.

Im mesmerised and tantalised,
As the words and sentences dare me,
Tp go deeper an deeper,
Into this strange land.

They dare me to forget myself,
To leave my surroundings behind,
And break all the rules by which I abide,
Im tempted to break free,
Cut all ties.

But somethings not right,
The pages stop turning,
‘THE END’ is written bold and bright,
The flame of thrill stops burning,
A thought dawns upon me,
That I won’t be able to go further,
Because like always it ends as a cliffhanger.

Solitude’s Search

Alone versus loneliness, two sides of a coin,
One a peaceful state, the other a mournful groan.
I'm sitting here, alone in my room...

Summer of Study

Beneath the searing summer sun,
My friends and I studied one by one,
Gripping our pens with razor-sharp minds...

Time Flies By

Was it a dream?
Or, was I not alive?
Everything went by...
