Until Next Time

Sweet smells of ink 

rusted cold metal shelves 

inviting me 

 

a cozy chair 

steaming coffee

the cover envelops 

 

Each page an adventure

Love

Grief

exploration

 

I sit still

Yet travel

Pushing the boundaries

 

A sweet musty aroma

Beckons me

 

Each page a new conquest

A far off town  

A lonely village  

Each book a journey to the unknown

family within a paper 

friends within the ink

love within the cover

 

my life outside reality

close the book

comfy chair, empty mug

 

thank you for the adventure

until next time

Me
