Spaces in my bookshelf


There’s spaces in my bookshelf

Where your novels used to be

I read each one a thousand times

But kept them all pristine

Never wrote in your margins

Or marked my favourite lines

Never altered any pages

Like the way you did mine

Now there’s spaces in my bookshelf

Because maybe that’s what you need

Someone who’s not afraid to bend a page

Or take notes while they read
