"Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten." - Neil Gaiman

Some call it obsession,
Perhaps it's rightly named,
But I call it adoration,
As I thirst for every page.

Maybe I'm anti-social,
Maybe I don't care,
But Heroes are far better company
Then the people I find out there.

Dog eared and tear smeared,
They've been my friends for ages.
There I spend, all my hours
Amid the food stained pages.

I want to live and feel all the shades, tones, and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life.
And I am horribly limited.
-Sylvia Path

I really love this! I can relate to it in so many levels. The last line is killer :)
