I have issues reading due to the eyes having trouble staying in order on the lines. I basically jump around an entire sentence and put it together in my mind. I do use audio books to quicken the pace( you can find sooo many classics just on youtube).
However, I do still love literature(despite going into a mathematics-based major), for it is truly the representation of human experiences.
Anyways XD, my favorite poem is Mirror by Sylvia Plath
I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions.
Whatever I see I swallow immediately
Just as it is, unmisted by love or dislike.
I am not cruel, only truthful ‚
The eye of a little god, four-cornered.
Most of the time I meditate on the opposite wall.
It is pink, with speckles. I have looked at it so long
I think it is part of my heart. But it flickers.
Faces and darkness separate us over and over.
Now I am a lake. A woman bends over me,
Searching my reaches for what she really is.
Then she turns to those liars, the candles or the moon.
I see her back, and reflect it faithfully.
She rewards me with tears and an agitation of hands.
I am important to her. She comes and goes.
Each morning it is her face that replaces the darkness.
In me she has drowned a young girl, and in me an old woman
Rises toward her day after day, like a terrible fish.
And my favorite book is Of Mice and Men. I have a thing for classical books. I am the dweeb reading Gone With the Wind when I have time to kill.
