Tell the Author

When you read a story,
What parts do you remember?
Is it the characters? The plot?
The setting along the way?
Is it the details? The morals?
What makes you want to stay?
In the worlds of an author.
So precious. So unique.
Do you hope for cliches?
Something funny a character will say?
Is it the writing that pulls you in?
Or the thought of an adventure?
When you read a story,
What will be your quencher?
A heroic heroine?
A tale of identity?
A battle against an unknown entity?
Do you thank the author when the tale is through?
Let them know you loved it, won’t you?
The heart of the story,
the characters,
the rhyme,
Especially in debuts,
the author took their time.
They poured their soul,
Tears, blood, and stress
Into a story
That they hope would bless.
Hours of research,
A questionable search history,
All for the sake of quelling our misery.
So when you read a story,
No matter what you remember.
I hope you tell the author
Its something you treasure.
