I never read any of my books completely
Actually cannot, as I read many
At the same time or just open
One from a page that catches my fancy!

Look, don’t think I’m a flirtatious reader
Whose attention hovers over many covers
Truth is that love to uncover
The truth in the books that I read.

Some books, just some of them
Love me enough to take away a part
Of my attention with them.
Relationships are never complete

And it is like the books we read
But the book is not like me
And even I am not like the book at all.
We’re just similar.

Similar? Well, yes, it is words are the DNA
That make up books and us
Words connect us
And words flow between us.
