I am not an easy Book to Read

November 20, 2011
People tell me that I am easy to read, that I show my emotions.

They tell me that they know me well, that they know when I'm happy or sad or frustrated.

You think you know me? Have you read between the spaces, the fine print at the bottom? Do you even understand the text that you are reading?

There is some much more to know about me that you don't know, so don't be telling me that I am easy to read.

I am not an easy book to read.

This is good...I just wish you had written more! Such a great metaphor going throughout the poem, the speaker being read as one would read a book. You might like to try continuing further to make comparisons to yourself and a book...You already have said "fine print", "between the spaces", both great metaphors.
