You were somewhere in the pages
hiding and waiting to be found
while I skipped through the book looking
for answers. I finally saw
where I wouldn’t look: between lines,
between moments to breathe and read,
there you were, I could feel you, sensed
all about you, your skin on mine
I felt your yearning for love. You
were somewhere in the pages, I
found your hiding place when I stopped
reading, and started loving you.

  1. Captivating, as usual.

  2. Subtly written, conveying strong feelings. Very nice, Ina.

    Very beautifully written 🙂

  4. Strange, but true, that we only find what we are looking for when we stop searching.

    There is real depth to this apparently simple poem.

    One of your very best

    • Hi David

      Thank you very much for your comment 🙂 and understanding what I was trying to say!

      We try to ‘read’ people. We should just love. 🙂
