Some may never understand.
May never learn to comprehend
Of what it is like to be lost within pages,
Of how a book is a mesmerizing cage,
Of how it pulls you in and grips your heart,
Of how authors write their craft and share their art.
For I know what it is like to be consumed by a story,
To experience love, pain, war, and glory.
Through reading I have lived many lifetimes
And sought many different pastimes.
For getting absorbed in a good book
Is an indescribable feeling, just take a look.
