The Book

Is it what you want?
A book slammed shut? Seal the
lock and throw away the key?
If that’s the case, then let it be for
you never saw any worth in me.

Is it what you want?
This chapter to end? Burn
each page housing a dream?
If the answer is yes, then strike
a match for things were never
what they seemed.

Is it what you want?
All the words erased? Lift magic
ink like dust and blow it away?
If it’s true, these lungs are strong.
My breath can push love right out
of your way.

Is it what you want?
A book slammed shut? Seal the
lock and throw away the key?
If that’s the case, then let it be for
you never saw any worth in me.
