tens of thousands of stories
lit by flickering wicks
how many strange worlds
how many strangers residing
how much there is to know,
to find out
to search for
how many tears
wrapped between the seams
resting on the shelves
Leather bound
dusty brown
my fingers itch
my lips twitch
sounding the words around me
longing to read
the whispers from the library
