Maggie Stiefvater, and Poem: The Words

img_20160426_163707562_hdr.jpgMaggie Stiefvater, my favorite author! This is what I got going on tonight: Her final book in the Raven Boys series, The Raven King. So far, it is fabulous!

The reason I love Maggie Stiefvater so much is because of her writing. I love her writing style, so poetic, so lyrical. You love hearing the sound of her words when you recite them out loud. And like the magic she writes about in her books, her words are magic. She has the power to transport you into a different world. Be wary of entering a world of Maggie Stiefvater’s, you may not come out again. 😉

 

I love her words so much, that after reading some more of her new book the other night, I frantically typed out this poem in my phone:

The Words

Love the way

a good book feels

gets inside your skin

Makes you feel

Feel, feel

Feel as you aren’t real

Feel as if you are dreaming

 

Love like the impossible

Forbidden

without limits

no hesitation

Love without sleep

without barriers

nothing to keep,

keep you back

From full throttle

 

Love the thrill

of overkill

of too much

and not enough

Feel, feel, feel

Words so powerful

Transports you into

another time

another place

 

You are the impossible

you are that dream

you’ve started to become

and you can feel

The way it burns

inside  you

Love, love, love

until you die

until you cry

Reach for the impossible

New beginnings.
