Sometimes I wish I was a Book

Sometimes I wish I was a book;

Holding countless tales in perfect detail.


Sometimes I wish I was a book;

Complete from start to finish.

Sometimes I wish I was a book;

Open to a new edition of myself.

Sometimes I wish I was a book;

Completely incomplete in my saga.

Sometimes I wish I was a book;

To be sought after in late nights.


Sometimes I wish I was a book;

To lay on top of a dozing lover.

Sometimes I wish I was a book;

To hold the scent of roses true.

Sometimes I wish I was a book;

So that I’m protected by my people.


Sometimes I wish I was a book;

To finally be in someone’s hoard.

Sometimes I wish I was a book;

And maybe then I could get a second look.

Sometimes I wish I was a book;

Everlasting, just like a brook.
