Comfort is a fantasy,

A night of new personalities,

It’s a group of adventurers exploring the river bottoms,

It’s surrendering your existence to a fake survival guide.

It’s playing the scared one while finding a way to scare yourself.

***

Comfort is a magically induced escape from life,

An Elvish Bow and Arrow contest,

Pistachios in a sling shot,

It’s Soccer with a golf club,

It’s a roll of the dice.

***

Comfort is my best shot at building homemade armor,

A blanket cape and a pillow breastplate.

It’s a fallen branch long sword.

It’s a crown of sticks and twigs,

***

Comfort is a duel,

A challenge amongst friends.

It’s a fight for glory, for honor,

It’s a night of flesh wounds,

It’s a night of missing limbs, and bunny hops

but no signs of concession.

***

Comfort is a Fantasy,

At Least for me,

Comfort is Play.

Nick Graham

My life has been full of dichotomies, Trauma, but love. Change, but safety. Abandonment, but role models. These differences are shared in my writing and poems with a unique perspective.
