Favorite Quote:
"If music be the food of love, play on" - Shakespeare


The dark ink sweeps across the page,
The textured paper crinkles at your fingertips,
The glossy cover smudges as you grasp it,
The new smell hits your nose,
Breathe deeply,

The words enter your mind,
Ringing a bell,
Bringing connotations to the tip of your tongue,
Whispering the things hidden in between the lines,

The meanings envelop your heart,
Striking emotions,
Love,
Hatred,
Despair,

And as you turn the page,
Swish,
Crackle,
It begins again

I love to read anything I can get my hands on, so I thought I'd devote a sheet of paper to that.
