Parallelism

Drawing parallels
Between books and life
Is a peculiar event.
I am immersed in the story
And can see the characters
Walking, breathing, speaking,
All around me,
And they have faces that are
Too familiar
To have been conjured by
My imagination.
It is with a jolt,
As though woken up from
A deep sleep abruptly,
That I realise
How the tale is one and the same
As my life.
