Bliss


Crawling in the quiet,
word by word;
swallowed in a breath
in unreached realms,
untouched lives.

It is the newness,
it is the goodness,
it is the life that breathes
in each page turned
that enlivens a whole new world.


Tell me a story
rather, give me a book
and I shall survive.
Give me something to read
and I shall come alive.                      

                        
I shall fall in love
with the people who dwell there.
Fantasy, fiction, romance,
they call it.
I name it – Bliss!


For when it’s read - cover to cover,
there will be a part of me
that’ll mourn for its end,
but I’ll gladly smile for a bonus life
and an ever-lasting friend.

  1. I feel the same way about the "life" I lead within the pages of a book. With some books, it is sad when they end. Some live on in memory for a long time.

    1. Yes, Sherry! It feels like we are a part of that story, a part of those characters we have been reading about. I guess, it's the same with every true reader. :)

    1. They do suit you... that reminds me, I left that novel midway...the [what was its name] novel seemed to be a good one. Let me know the story once you're here.

      And, yes, thanks again! :)
