My Addiction

All lined up
Waiting, begging to be taken
Wanting a home to call their own
A bookcase to keep them safe
To be beloved and cherished
So many to choose from
At discounted prices not to be ignored
Making victory all the more sweet
Even if the end result hurts
Financially though minimally
Worth it for the addiction
Addiction to written words
Packaged into paperback form
Thirteen new ‘children’ follow me
Home and find a honored place
Among new friends waiting to be
Opened and have their words relished
