Poetry: “Escapism”

I suppose this one has some form of relation to the poetry from most recent days, but I do not consider it to be as connected as the other ones.

***~***~***~***

Escapism

Flee from the world
With sharp edges
Into soothing fantasy
Engaging your emotions
Made dull by hardship
Protective measure
Fiction brings catharsis
A book with beloved characters
To identify with
To root for
That lift your spirits
Above your current worries
To spend a few hours
Engaged in troubles not your own
That can be switched off
With the press of a remote
A temporary measure
Not a cure to mental hardship
But a balm
A way to cope
And encourages the imagination
