Read You

you read like its going out of style
I’m trying to catch up, it might take a while
more like a lifetime
because there is your speed, then there is mine
you read like the world is about to end
the library is your best friend
day and night and every time in between
not a single word in a single book goes unseen
the love affair between you and literature
makes you a honorary literary figure

you’re Belle and books are your beast
in all the chaos, they bring you peace
but how well do you read people with no equal
take me in, I’m one of a kind, no sequel
read me like a novel with a plot you can’t see through
and one day I’ll learn to read you

why do you read like you’re running out of time?
where is there space in your complicated mind?
for the world around you, waiting your approval
people filled with words that could never defuse you
1000 words per minute with 100 percent comprehension
a guru for books, but films shouldn’t be mentioned
they get no distinction, all apprehension
the pride that hides in between each page flip
the journey behind each novel is a complete trip
your mind races alone to places no one has ever been
it’s no contest, no one can keep up in a race you always win

you read like your life depends on it
it’s your life support and you just won’t quit
book clubs are created to compete with you
but they struggle to keep up with you
they are a lifetime behind your brilliant mind
figuring out where you even find the time
what you can read in a fraction of yours
is the mystery of life everyone’s searching for
will your literary mind ever be satisfied
read like you need it to survive
keep doing what makes you feel alive
how much can you read with one life
everyone would have to live twice
to read the way you impossibly do
there are readers, writers, and then there’s you
