This was inspired by a fellow slicer’s slice Kim K. on Live, Love, Teach…My March Trade
They stare at me
From their spots on the dusty shelf.
“What did we do?”
“Why are we being ignored?”
I feel their
“We’ve been nothing but true to you.”
“We’ve been there whenever you needed us.”
Soon, I say
They are itching to be opened,
To have their pages turned,
To have me hang on their every word,
I miss you, I say.
I miss you.
I want to visit their characters.
I need to curl up and get lost in their stories.
I long to laugh and cry and feel anger with them again.
But I have to finish, I say
I have to finish.
I have been so dedicated to my Slices.
Written more during this challenge than the years prior.
Only missed one day.
I will finish strong.
One more week, I say to my books on their shelves.
One more week.
