Guest posts are one of the best ways to get some refreshing voices over on this blog and this time I have the lovely Clo [Book Dragons] who is not just a great blogger but also a really good poet. So get yourself ready to be blown away by this sweetest poem she has written to pronounce her love for books. Oh, and it’s too relatable! But first, let’s welcome her.
Firstly, I’d like to thank Fanna for letting me guest post on her blog! Secondly, I’m Clo and I blog over at Book Dragons (as well as bi-weekly over Bookwyrming Thoughts which is owned and run by Sophia!) I’m not sure how many of you are aware of this but before I even started my blog, I was writing stories…then poems and lyrics too.
You can find some of my work on Wattpad but today, I’m going to be sharing with you what I love most about books, in a poem I created.
WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT BOOKS
entangled in blankets
rustling of pages break the silence
as they fall deeper
into a world they wish
meeting people they soon
call their friends
even if you can’t see them
laughter fills their room
laughing at ink on paper
the ink weaves into their heart
making them care for
someone they can never have
changing position once more
last half of the story
eyes focused solely on the book
you may speak, they won’t hear
lost in a world where they’re heard
you may see them distressed
wishing they could give a character
a piece of their mind
you may watch their breathing increase
eyes dancing with mirth, if only for a second
one by one tears fall
as a book just shaped them
as characters made them feel heard
made them feel pain, love, heartache
as a book stole their breath away
not for the first time nor the last
placing it back on the shelf
a faint smile on their face
a happiness in their eyes
that only a book can give them
they escaped reality for a while
now it’s time to return
Books are an escape for me, always have been and always will be. What do you get from this poem? And by that, what does this poem make you feel, how do you connect with it? And, what do you love most about books?
