Darling,
  When you reach for me
  Don't take me down
  Like a book upon your shelf
  Quickly flipping to you favorite part

  Don't get in a hurry
  Just because you've read me
  So many times before

  You may think you know
  Everything that's written in my lines
  But please
  Don't get in a hurry
                
  Just relax
  Put on those rose colored glasses

  Reach for me as if I am
  The book you've never read
  The top one on your list
  A brand new fresh edition
  Hot off the press

  Feel the smooth corners of my cover
  Admire the golden edges of my pages
  Examine my table of contents
  Slowly read my introduction
  View my illustrated pages
  Smell the newness of my ink
  
  Take your time
  Digest the lines
  The paragraphs
  The chapters
  Read with anticipation
  Forward to the plot
  Until the book
  And you
  Become one

I LIKE this!!! Very well written and good read. Never judge a book by its cover. Beautiful!

This is a very good piece of work...were you to say it any other way, we'd have to move you to the adult forum!!!  Great topic, I can totally relate

SeptSong -

I thought this was a lovely
thought-provoking piece that
simply said ... here I am ...
get to know me well.

Lovely ... just lovely.

I am an avid reader and never tire of reading my favorite books.  I love the metaphor you used in this!
