Bookworm!

You know you are a bookworm

when in a big mall of shining lights and glossy things

you find the corner shop of books

and your feet take you there before you know it.

You know you are a bookworm

when your eyes dazzle, widen at the neat stack of covers

in varied colors, names and patterns

feeling them with your hands,Β you want to buy them all.

You know you are a bookworm

when you finally pick up one

run its pages between your fingers

drowse yourself inΒ the scent of its pages.

You know you are a bookworm

when spending hours in the bookshop

is not just enough time and

you promise to come back soon again.

You know you are a bookworm

when your friends have shopping bags

more than your eyes can count

and you with your one bag of books

are as happy, excitedΒ and delirious.

You know you are a bookworm

when reaching home, the first thing you do

is going through all them books

stacking them neatly where your eyes can see

the treasures of your world, every day.
