Voracious

Voracious

A Poem by Penulis Kecil
"

When we hunger to escape, there are so many avenues we can take.

"

She doesn't write anymore,

just devours books like souls

eats the characters

swallowing down traits

and thoughts.

 

Voracious,

she is consuming entire lives

one word at a time.

I love the idea of the reader becoming the lives in the books that she avidly reads. A wonderful expression of escapism through fiction. It's absolutely perfect! 100/100
