Bibliophile ” The Book Lover”

Bibliophile or The Book Lover

B.J. Silberman

For too long I searched

In books with worn bindings half-hidden on dusty shelves

Or in bold-faced bestsellers

For answers from more experienced lives

To the questions

Which reappear

As if they  have an internal calendar.

Unwilling to admit to possessing the opportunity

To fit my pieces

To write a life

Where self-knowledge is just a plot twist away

And becoming the heroine is less frightening.
