A suitable book
Weighing the novel in my hands,
the smell of worn pages entices.
A finger lingers on random words:
remote themes of most exotic spices.
Made all the more inviting by you –
a friendly recommendation.
Reading lines your eyes have passed
fills me with such trepidation.
Will I feel as you? – A connection,
one based on mutual respect?
Or are you just an infatuation?
“A suitable boy” – a suitable test.
