i had the strangest nightmare

and it really left me shook
i dreamed i was a bookmark
and my bed became the book
.
inside the book i felt entrapped
and i began to squirm
the book became an apple
and i found i was its worm
.
i finally found my way outside
but what a horror then
the apple, rotten to the core
turned to a book again
.
this book was joined by other ones
and though i turned to flee
they grabbed me by the middle
and they started reading me
.
they bent back all my pages
and they nearly cracked my spine
this went beyond perusing
for they read between each line
.
they soaked up all my knowledge
with a hungry fire that burned
they left me crumpled in a heap
with all they things they'd learned
.
right then, i opened up my eyes
and looked off to the right
a book lay on my nightstand
and i finally saw the light
.
i realized this book had caused
the terror i'd been through
i'd checked it out three weeks ago
and it was overdue
