unwritten

falling in love at a used bookstore

what's not to love?

falling in love

at a used bookstore

it’s everything

that remains unwritten

the spaces in between words

an inkless infatuation

the yellowing pages

the stale scent of aged paper

the worn binding

frayed pages

highlights

annotations

folded corners

smudges

stories

that books tell

without words

characters

places

the magic

it spells out

an unwritten

love

for books

they are like people

in many ways with

untold stories

of all previous

owners and

various shelves

that they’ve lived on

all of these untold

reasons that make

falling in love at a used

bookstore the most subtly

extravagant experience a person

should have with the unwritten

at least once
