Wicked Words

Prompt: One of the books in the library glows

A glimmer, a glamour, that’s what it was.

Sparkling words, spiralling worlds.

Both equally fascinating, both equally dangerous.

A crack, just a quick peek, curiosity and the cat be damned.

Silvered edges, golden letters, honeyed words.

Seductive siren call, a bargain from beyond.

Knowledge, insight, offerings from within, worth it?

From the page, looking out, I see you do the same.

Bargains and whispered words, part of the chorus, singing to you.

Inside the book we are all stories waiting to consume the stories of others, two in one out.

Leather and ink, glamour and geas, your life as written.
