Everyone has a story, a reasoning behind
Their actions, their words, their thoughts.
They have a prologue, which sets the scene,
That reveals important things if you bother to read it.
Their first chapters are important,
Telling you the basic things about
Their personality and sense of self.
Most people read these chapters,
But the further you get in someone else’s story,
More people lose interest, willing to keep the story,
To put the book on the shelf, but then
They forget about it. Or they just don’t care.
The last chapters, which bring us to
The point that the person is in their life right now,
Are the ones that are the least read,
Except by those who are closest to them.
If you truly care about someone, you will
Read their story from beginning to end,
Word for word, line for line.
Yet there is danger in knowing a person’s story.
Whilst reading someone’s story, you could
Fall in love, like a soft breeze on a warm day that
You hardly notice, but when you stop and
Think about it, was there all along,
And you should never have taken it for granted.
When that happens, embark on a new adventure,
Creating a new story with them,
Starting with the prologue and not ending until you
Type the final letter.
Because no one likes an unfinished story.
