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
Nice poem! It really captures what I think when I read.
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.
so true. thats realy good i enjoyed reading it^^
