Literature Interests

Oh so many things I’ve read
That have taken my breath away,
And suddenly made me cry,
Then chased my blues away.
I love the way a writer takes
The saddest things in life
And turn them into ecstasy,
Like the edges of a knife.
It’s so amazing how they find
The images that they have.
So many fantasies resemble mine,
And some I’ve sweetly had.
If ever you read a book on hand,
Or anything to read,
Please share your literature.
I find it’s such a need.
