Heartbroken bibliophile


I hear them beckoning to me.

I caressed them, lust burning within me. Still I said, I can’t take you with me.

With painful struggle, I finally managed to walk away. I could still hear them pleading.

Heartbreak is being in a bookstore, seeing all the books I cannot have.
