SCRATCH MY SOUL This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

If you scratch my soul,
You will get scraps of Jane Austen.

If you scratch scraps of Jane Austen,
You will get attain the traits of a raconteur.

If you attain the traits of a raconteur,
You will see magic in the books you read.

If you see magic in the books you read,
You will become a bibliophile.

If you become a bibliophile,
You can be my comrade.

If you will be my comrade,
You will hear a million of stories.

If you hear a million stories,
You will become my kindred spirit.

If you become my kindred spirit,
You will be the one closest to my heart.

If you are the closest to my heart,
You can scratch my soul.

Hi Devanshi! This was a wonderful poem! I loved how it's like a circle with no start or no end and it captures the mindset of an avid reader beautifully! I'm a bibliophile myself! And it's so nice to meet a good writer from India! :)
