I am an open book for you to read...

OPEN BOOK STORY

You read me like an open book,
I am yours to shape and mold,
My future is yours to unfold.


You peer into the depths of my soul,
Confronted by things I cannot control,
“Some things should stay buried” I’m told.


You keep on and read between the lines.
My torments are very real and awfully true,
Admit it! They scare you too.


You gain nothing by controlling me,
So close your eyes and let me be,
This life is not worth discovery.


You’ve read me with a flow of eloquence,
However, these words were mere pretense.

Haunting piece, it's a nice thought being able to read someone like a book. Although I'd be hesitant as you never know what goes on behind a person's eyes. A very brave write if you don't mind me saying. It's as if the poems saying you can look but you may not like what you see. Thought provoking and thank you once again for showing us your excellence

I liked this poem. I prefer it to Aphrodite.

Call me fussy, but i'd scrap the last two lines...they didn't seem to work for me, for some reason.
