If I were a Book

If I were a book, you could flip through my pages to underline the favorite things about me,

fold my page corners or bookmark them and tell your friends about how wonderful I am.

You would save me in a bookshelf next to your bed where you come to escape reality

and dream of things that make you happy.

You would read me again and again as if I were the only book you’ve got

and you would take me everywhere with you because I would make you

happy with the way I choose words for you and how sweetly you

would let them flow through my papers.

I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.

    I would surely do all these things if you were a book! 😉

    Just finished working on my post for this prompt. Doing a poem didn’t strike me at all! A lovely take on the prompt, dear 🙂
