Burtle

Books books books

Lights on well past midnight

Yet the library continues its work

Odd yet normal of a sight

To see the girl reading with a smirk

She acts like she knows life’s records

A meaning hidden in the words

 

More time passes, she keeps skimming

Soaking in all the mysteries to be had

Lives and knowledge all brimming

No matter if it was happy or sad

The higher meaning she heads towards

A meaning hidden in the words

 

Using one life to live multiple others

She can’t stop flipping the pages

All the feelings and stories hers

Seeing life’s multiple stages

Not as simple as three thirds

A meaning hidden in the words

 

The book is closed and put back

A smile of satisfaction on her face

As much as she knows she lacks

But that’s ok for she has grace

Knowing all the she wants undeterred

The meaning hidden in the words
