You know you're in love when you don't want to fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.-Dr. Seuss

Have you ever read
a really good book
that you can connect to?
It seems like it was written
just for you,
with the way
it mirrors your
Or maybe it was
just a good
find, and interesting
read, or a dream-life,
one you want to live.
Either way, it's full
of love, and of
romance, and of hope,
and trust, and
and grief, and
regret, and confusion.
And after you
read it, all of
those emotions
and feelings
are heightened inside
of you and you
find yourself
recreating scenarios
from the book.
I love that.

"The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane." --Marcus Aurelius

Another great poem!  I love how you describe reading a good book so well.  My only criticism is that you might want to put your poem into stanzas, but that depends on your personal tastes as a writer.
