The book

The mundanity and simplicity
of syllabic formation,
creating images to capture
your world.

Enchanted and captured
deep in the covers,
intensity holding me
hugging me tight.

Resistance is futile
powerless to escape it,
I need no persuasion
to lure me back.

I am a mere prisoner
until I consume you,
escape is impossible
even when I am full.
