Her Private Literature

Under your book cover I discovered more than I dreamed

Past your eyes, through your mind, you swim, operating in peace

God adds up my prayers for you

Hello turns into let’s get to know each other more

Hey I want more turns into friends assured.

Transformed into

Showing hidden thoughts

Easing into

Calling each other when lost

And I love, love, how it breaks fear down

Walking into

I told God I don’t want to be without you.

You allowed me to read

And I stayed up turning your pages

You trusted and believed

I wouldn’t rip you to shreds and I won’t

Memorizing every word

Still, I’ll continue to read it all until I die.

Others skimmed to their shame

Others left dirt upon you

Still some folded corners to use against you later

Some left bookmarks and never returned

Not I.
