To the Author of the Book I am Reading

A good author draws us to his writing by blurring the world between fiction and reality and it is hard for us to walk away from a good book.

To the Author of the Book I am Reading

All characters in the book
Are fictional
You proclaim
With an enticing cover
Cleverly written Forward
A back cover with tidbits
I am drawn to turn the pages
Between the covers
Soon I am engrossed
Fictional characters turns real
Mind drugged with your emotion
Surrendering to your thoughts
Hijacked
World of fiction grips real life
Tongue starts speaking
Your language
I become one with your
Fictional characters
Fiction becomes reality
Know I can close the book
Imprison your characters
Inside the cover
Throw it away
Go about my daily life
Do tell me
When in your book
You have depicted me
Emotions real
Flowing from my heart
How do I shut thee off
And walk away from me?

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.
