For the booklovers

by anne27


Ah! That fear of

Opening another book

When you've just finished 

A masterpiece. 

The uncertainty

Whether this one will be good enough

Compared to the last.

The denial

To live in any world

Except the last one

The most beautiful you experienced;

Whose words had captured your heart

And trapped you in their golden cage

That when you were set free

You no longer wanted to leave

That blissful world.

Ah! That fear of

Beginning a new journey!

Hey there! I really like this poem, and I certainly can relate! It's cool how you've used the line "Ah! That fear of" at both the beginning and the end. It helps give the poem a unified quality. I also think you've done well evoking the feelings that come with this experience.

Your format is nice and clear, and your spelling and grammar are great. I really admire the clean, organized appearance and the good flow. Thanks for sharing, and keep up the good work!

can I quote this to someone else? And I really like this part.

And you didn't really describe the fear. You should focus on staying with wanting to be in that world.

Hello Hikari here with a review!

Let's jump right in shall we?

I loved this poem everything about it spoke to me on that level that all book lovers know.

{Ah! That fear of

Opening another book

When you've just finished

A masterpiece. }

Oof way to hit me in the feels right from the start lol.

{Ah! That fear of

Beginning a new journey!}

I think this last line here was my favorite! I don't really have any criticism it was a wonderful poem, kudos! ❤

Hey anne! Incoming review!

Your poem perfectly describes book hangover. Ah, the struggles of an avid reader. Anyway, onto the review!

I'll start out with critique first.

The most beautiful you experienced;
I think you meant to put "The most beautiful thing you experience;" But that was the only minor thing I found to critique.

Let me praise your work now!

A masterpiece.

The uncertainty

Compared to the last.
Your use of an interjection in the beginning catches the reader's eye and wants them to understand why it was used. And the words just flow together so well. And I feel this every time I read a new book because my book taste has been tainted with The Outsiders lol.

But that's all I have for today. I hope you found some of it useful. Sorry I didn't have more to critique or say, most of what you wrote spoke for itself! You're a great writer, keep it up! Anyway byeeeeeeeeeee<3

I love this poem, it's so relatable!

Thanks LadyTano! :D




I say Wolf, for all wolves are not of the same sort; there is one kind with an amenable disposition – neither noisy, nor hateful, nor angry, but tame, obliging and gentle, following the young maids in the streets, even into their homes. Alas! Who does not know that these gentle wolves are of all such creatures the most dangerous!
— Charles Perrault
