She Lives Vicariously

novels and films
trap a life in the past;
timeless days
will never relieve
her insatiable need

love eludes her
and fiction deludes her

timeless days
in her fantasy world,
every moment a dream

she lives vicariously
feeling love for a stranger
a screen makes familiar
to her; she's so scared
her life will be wasted
between ivory pages
of lovers; and although
she's good at deceiving,
when moments between dreams
proclaim in curled letters: the end,
she fears it may be her own
and flees to the bookshelf to find a new home

novels and films
trap her life in the past;
timeless days
will never relieve
the insatiable need
for love; it eludes her
and fiction deludes her

these days
in her fantasy world
leave her cold,
every moment a dream,
every dream not her own
