Each page opens up a new world,
world that tells you a story
Every word leaves impressions,
impressions that pass the test of time
Living and breathing in between the lines,
lines that offer you comfort and ecstasy
Drawing you in for endless hours,
hours spent away from reality
Being a friend and lover passionately,
passionately teaching you lessons unsaid
Filling barren spaces on your shelves,
shelves that would otherwise bring an uncanny emptiness
An immortal fire burns,
burns hidden desires and unleashes radical thoughts
A four letter word is all,
all of the universe in its palm
Changing lives with magic,
magic that touches them eternally
I can't begin to describe the relationship I share with books because it is truly unlike any other human relationship. It's something beyond words, beyond feelings and emotions. It's above expectations, above trust and above material bonds.
I don't need to ask them to stay, because I know they will.
Without asking them to help me through tough times, they offer their worthiest advice.
I've never asked them to make me laugh or cry, but they never disappoint.
Books are more than just pieces of paper held together with a string.
They are life.

MAY THE BOOK BE WITH YOU
P.S: There goes another attempt at describing my relationship with books through words and some lines I penned down quickly.
