Dear Books,
Take me away
Live upon fantasy
Wrap me up
In blankets of
Writer’s thoughts
Swallow me from
Anxiety’s of world
Smear me in glitter
Of excitement unlike me
Absorb me and make me
A character of love
For so often we wish
The hero or lover we are
Create me a story
All of my own
Build me a life
So I can live out
Pages and pages
Till the ink runs out.



As much as I
Want time to pass
I shall refrain
For there you are
Through it all
Guide and comforter
Other half
So many trials
And although mine
To face
You help me through
Make me smile
Like a rainbow on
A cloudy day
