The Book Lover

She read books.
Devoured the words.
Let sentences consume her.
Drowned in the writer’s thoughts,
she experienced a liberation she long sought.

She read books.
Wallowed in their magic.
Allowed the stories
to fill the gaping holes.
And heal scars the world
her branded upon her soul.

But more than anything,
she read books to leave herself,
bound between the pages,
with a hope to meet bits of her former self,
when she shall read those books, again.
