A book is but a sweet escape

To pick you off your feet

And when it starts to pull you in

You're in for such a treat

For in the pages of a book

The world becomes a new

And anything that happens

May be happening to you

Anything is possible

The plot with twist and turn

In the end, you'll find your way

There's so much more to learn

For in-between the text

We all may find ourselves

And every hero or villain

Not merely descriptions on shelves

But a reflection of the good and bad we bury in ourselves

And when one is defeated

The other will prevail

But who will win the influence

He is not decided in the tale.

But within the heart, within the text

The words that touch us most

Will always lead us to hold on

To pick our favorite host.
I was having a really great discussion with a friend about the joys of reading and ended up with this

This is really well written! Every line describes what it's like to read, at least for me. I do agree with Aurora66; the ending doesn't flow quite as smoothly. All in all, though, it was fantastic <3

Nice! I think the rhythm doesn't flow quite as well in the end as it does in the beginning, but then again i'm anything but an expert on poetry, so... anyway, i love the message :)

Thanks! I did get a bit sloppy with the rhyming near the end but some of that is that I haven't written anything in a while. I might go back and mess with it some after I let it sit a bit.
