Fatal Attraction of Books

Fatal Attraction of Books

 Centuries of wisdom and lore,

books upon the shelf postulate

and claim glory forever more.

~

Riddles, rhymes, and folklore;

epic journeys to anticipate;

fables of truth and charms de jour.

~

Fairytale, fantasy, myth galore;

ships and mermaids gravitate

hearts away from the shore.

~

Macabre, mystery, and horror;

death-defying tempts of fate;

villains, murderers, shady abhor.

~

Romance, drama, hearts soar;

relationships, emotions dictate;

temptress, femme fatale, allure.

~

Wandering the windswept moor,

books upon the shelf postulate

and claim glory forever more,

with centuries of wisdom and lore.
