They tell us, "destroy what destroys you" and then they get mad when we hurt ourselves


Don't fall in love with a girl who reads
she'll over-analyze every word
and she'll never understand why
people aren't paperbacks
and she'll write in your corners
search for a plot in your veins
and make a metaphor of your broken heart

don't fall in love with a girl who reads
she'll make notes in your margins
and skip to the good parts
she'll bend your spine back
just a little too far
and when she's sleepy
she'll skim pages
always forgetting her place

don't fall in love with a girl who reads
because she'll fall in love with
last chapters and final words
and the ending will always be
her favorite part

I really enjoyed this. Let me guess.. this idea was from the popular essay "Date a girl who reads" It was a nice twist!
