"All the world is made of faith, trust, and pixie dust." --J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan


Readers have a gift, a power,

That many fail to comprehend

We can use it at any hour

To help our hearts to mend

The life of a reader is mine to love

As the words come to life,

It is as glorious as the heavens above

The words I read destroy my heart's strife

Books make my soul fly

They make my smile shine

Without them I would die

A world with no books sounds as awful as brine

Now you can see,

How much books mean to me.

Thank you for the feed back, I really appreciate it. However, this peice is a sonnet, so every other line is supposed to rhyme. Perhapse I'll rewrite it as a free verse so it will flow better. Thank you again for the comment.

Hello

it's good, but something you could do a different way is maybe not having to rhyme each time or force any words to go in, I think it would be more of you if you didn't rhyme each time annd put what came to mind

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

“Gods of Olympus.” Piper stared at Leo. “What happened to you?”
His hair was greased back. He had welding goggles on his forehead, a lipstick mark on his cheek, tattoos all over his arms, and a T-shirt that read HOT STUFF, BAD BOY, and TEAM LEO.
“Long story,” he said.”

I absolutely adore this piece!

I love this! I'm a book lover and I guess a book nerd! But you were able to describe my feelings for books, when I couldn't! Your poem is wonderful! ^_^ thank you, for sharing this!

Your poem is very relatable! I love the metaphor: "Books make my soul fly". All in all, it was heartfelt, and enjoyable. Keep shining!

Sure I can see now how much they mean to you and to all the book's lovers cuz I'm one of them and I certainly agree with you and those beautiful and elegant words of yours. I loved your poem it is so meaningful and poetic. You surely have a talent and should keep writing no matter what. Great Job ^_^ 5/5 :D
