The Book

Keep away! The book is mine
It speaks to me alone.

It’s content reads like songs with secrets only I can know.

Like melody's, it sings to me, one page at a time
Keep away! Don't you stay! It speaks to my flesh and bone.
The book is mine, the book is mine, or heartbreak it will foreshadow.
No end in sight to give me a fright,
The next chapter starts anew.
