Confessions of a Reader

by Talin Mari

I’ve read you,

I’ve read you a million times.

I’ve read you,

I’ve read you without your rhymes.

Why is it that I can’t seem to stop reading you?

Why is it that all I want is to keep you to myself?

Why should I share you if I bask in my selfishness?

Why should I let you leave the warmth of my hands?

I’ve read you,

I’ve read you when I was alone.

I’ve read you,

I’ve read you when I needed a friend.

You helped accompany me when I was deserted.

You helped occupy my time when it felt endless.

You saved me from drowning in my hopeless tears.

You saved me from dreaming away all those years.

I’ve read you,

I’ve read you to revive my soul.

I’ve read you,

I’ve read you to show me the world….

The End
