Pages, Respectfully Crinkled

She’s a book,

Well read,

Countless times,

Crinkled pages,

Warped,

Wavy,

Stained,

Adored.

Crooked spine,

Clings,

Holds tight,

Determined,

Delicate,

Yet strong.

She’s a book,

So loved,

Shes tattered,

So read,

She’s exhausted,

So dependable,

She’s frayed.

Pages,

Once crisp,

Now soft,

Used,

In time,

She’ll physically fade,

Remembered,

Respected,

Forever,

She stays.

    I see a human in those words the marks of life and love tea stained from the comfort given, wrinkled, sapped and exhausted, from the giving his or herself.
