Read me.

Crease my pages, fold them down, run your hands along my spine.

Mark me with your favorite parts, take me in, inhale me.

Carry me in your hand, hold me against you.

 

Read me.

Understand the metaphors, appreciate the underlying meaning.

 

Read me.

I don't want to be pristine, I want cracked leather and coffee stains,

worn ink where your fingers have rubbed the words away.

 

Read me.

Until you've memorized me prologue to epilogue, yet each time you revisit the story you find something new, something to fall in love with all over again.

And if you do not read, then please…

 

Leave me.

Do not flip through so quickly, you miss the story, you lose the build up,

Do not pick me up because my cover suits you, then throw me in a corner to be forgotten,

or simply place me on display.

I don't want to go to waste,

what I have to show someone is worth the wait

and wait I shall

until someone truly

Reads me.
