She Loved Him Like Literature

She loved him like literature

She loved him like literature
She closed her eyes as if she were closing a book,
as if she had taken all of him in,
after reading his face and fingers and limbs and mouth
like a story. She holds him with her arms, like two long covers,
binding him with her body
inhaling his life each day.

Page by living page.
