books..

books..

luxuriously, elegantly

relaxing on levels patiently

waiting to swallow

the innocence of those

determined to come close

to touch, to hold

the wisdom treasured

on papers sewn together

in ink of all colors

my dear paper dictionary

my dear paper dictionary

my dear paper dictionary

will you forgive me please

for i don’t hold you anymore

i dumped you in that old box

sealed, kept somewhere in my garage

there were days, when i couldn’t do without you

i would open and search through you a hundred times

on days when i wrote essays in my school

would you forgive me for i am selfish now

lazy to flip through your many pages

i now depend on the latest means

today, i have the urge to open the sealed box

in which i dumped you with my own hands

today, i have the craving to hold you again

i promise to keep you safe in my bag

promise to carry you along everywhere

forgive me my dear paper dictionary

i shall dump you NEVER again
