Book Worm

Let me open you and inhale your smell
       Move my fingers through your pages
         Bury neck in your spine
          As an avid reader does
          Run my eyes filled with concentration
           Upon the story that's written
            Read between your lines
             Trace out meanings hidden within poems
              Scribbled by poets unknown known to me 
              Give a look at the marks
               That's favourite of someone anonymous
                Or couldn't decipher your mute words
                 Unfold corners done at floated away eons
                  Who gazed you repeatedly
                   Across the ink  dripped to words there
                   Unlock the treasure you have hidden within
                  As I turn your pages synchronizingly
                You'll then shower rain of knowledge upon me
               Reading you as my favourite book
              And try to clear mist of my thoughts
           Through your perception of topics
         And caress your dog-eared worn out pages
       Hold with utmost respect
      Near my heart
    Till sleep takes me in her lap
   Lost and twined in each others arm
  The world wonders who holds whom
 I take up this voyage each day
A love story that I won't let ever end
