Books are meant
to be felt.

Books should be
torn apart,
consumed by frustration,
reread with love
or understanding
’til the pages rip,
the covers disintegrate.

Readers must leave
of a time when
touched, held, revered
by a collection of words.

Books are
meaningless or
filled with heart
by a writer, a muse, a subject,
A loyal reader.

Books are meant
to be felt.

Amazing! I agree, books should touch you with different emotions, whether it be happiness, sadness or frustration---they should be felt. Great job!

I am like a star burst. A juicy contradiction. I'm hard to figure out, but when you get to my center, your suprised! It's not what you thought it would be, huh.

Very well written! Nice job!

Please comment and rate my new poem "Safe On A Cloud"!! And some of my other poems, because I'm new to TeenInk: "Girl Next Door", "Captured by Reflections" and "Longing For Those Days" !

Good job on your poem. I know this sound a bit ackward coming from a guy, but I like poetry. Mostly into dark poetry though. But your poem is very good.

I love how you say the reader should read the book with frustration, and reread it with love or understanding. I totally do that! And I agree- books are meant to be felt and reread until the spines are broken!

This poem expresses my feelings about books, but I could not have written it so well!
