In a Book

(a Ghazal)

I was a lonely and awkward child
Till I found myself in a book

Reading is reckless, for i drown
And resurface in another book

I wish I could hear the turn of the page
Or drink in the smell of my e-book

My world spins to the whim of a germ
To steady my mind I open a book

Meenakshi, have you had a look
who is the author of your book?
