Have you ever been lost in a book?

Have you ever been lost in a book? The feeling of a sudden change of timezone, as if all the characters are in reality when in fact they are for some times. The feeling of seeing the scene so perfectly you could touch the green grass of Wonderland or the faded blue accentuated pairs of pants of the Sisterhood? Have you ever been lost in their words and somehow, by some magic you see yourself speaking as if you’re the main character, the belle of the fairytale. You suddenly can fly, meet a lot of monsters and slay dragons, cry in front of a beloved one bidding goodbye in a war, dancing in front of Kings and Queens as you celebrate a birthday? Then reality tugs in, and you fall from the sky, the monsters are gone and the dragons are history, the warriors went to their wars and never returned, tripping your dress in front of everybody and the lights are dimming.
You hold on to the book until the last page, hence until the last word. You hold on to the book and press it to your chest. You feel your heart beating and you wipe a sad tear, wishing that someday, life will be as magical as this book and much, much more worth it.
