SHE IS A BOOK

SHE IS A BOOK

She is a breathing book

each night I touch her pages

delicately turn to find

her heart in letters

written by her hand…

 

Scent of vanilla

soft and sensuous

unveiling another thought

another smiling memory

another intimate piece of her…

 

And I read with such abandon

across her pages

my fingers trailing

her soft paper skin…

 

In her sighs

she speaks of

stories and sonnets

history and fantasy

blue skies and silvery silks…

 

I hear her voice

in the pages

wanting to know her

every line

every word

every letter…

 

Now I take her into me

share my book with her

until we know

can read each glance

each whisper

each touch…

 

She is a book

and I love to read her pages…

"Now I take her into me
share my book with her
until we know
can read each glance
each whisper
each touch…"

Poetical Prowess!!! This was fantastic! From the subtle flow to the image at the beginning to set the mood of the piece....you crafted an intelligently phrased piece. The type so delicately thought of that i cannot help but be enthralled in the book (pun intended) :)

This is great work! A nice start to my day:)

You see so clearly, dear poet. Thank you. Yes, love gives enchantment to our eyes.
What a lovely metaphor for one loved. It carries through each line flowing forward. Great phrases like: She is a breathing book / each night I touch her pages", "I read with such abandon across her pages", etc. It really does work as the metaphor right through the last line. Really nicely done.

Ah, my friend, thank you for stopping here. :)
dear Owl... Beauty is her calling card tucked in the pages of her book. The edges gilded with gold... stories untold. The flower pressed within the pages... throughout the ages. truly, Pat
