Don’t fall in love with a writer
They can never love someone
As much as they love their own books
They can never spend as much time with you
As they do on their writing
They will choose their art over you
They will break your heart into a million pieces
And write a bestseller about it
So don’t fall in love with a writer
Don’t fall in love with me.
Another poem where I am very happy with the title. Surprisingly, perhaps for the first time in my life, I came up with the title before the poem. “Don’t Fall In Love With A Writer” is the first title I am actually very happy with. I guess getting off cough syrup does wonders for the brain too.
The only problem is that I don’t love the poem. I think it could be significantly better. But it is what it is. Nothing is ever perfect I guess.
What can I say about the poem? I have been the writer that has broken someones heart. And I have dated writers that have broken my heart. I have experienced both ends of the spectrum and this poem was something I wrote from my own experiences. I guess it’s not just writers. Most people that create tend to be obsessed with their creations. And that’s okay. It’s just difficult for those that love them.

Loved the poem. I guess being romantically involved with a writer is a bit tricky. We have a flare for drama, we overthink and overanalyze everything, and we go into a trance when we are inspired to write.
Thanks. Yes, it can be pretty tricky since we give so much time to our writing,
I love it! Esp the last line.
Thanks so much 😊
I especially liked this one. great stuff
Thank you so much.
My husband and I are both writers…and I wouldn’t have it any other way…. 🥰
Aw, that’s so sweet 😊
I fell in love with a beautiful woman who was a writer she was a poet just like me We had the keys to each others hearts and minds we set each others love free
Our words flowed together like two rivers joining together creating a current This was the romantic interlude of love they both dreamed of words of reassurance
They say a writer is hard to fall in love with writing is how they spend their time When these two brilliant minds came together Keeping It Magical was like rhythm and rhyme
In one years time they got married and created a web site a YouTube channel wrote s book and Facebook page Writers know how to feel and what true love really is Keeping It Magical is the new rage
This writer wrote another writer into his world they penned their hopes and desires A romance so beautifully written could inspire the world and set hearts and souls on fire
Wow, it’s really a blessing to find someone you can connect with in that way that you have so much in common with. I don’t know if I’ll ever get that lucky, but I hope so someday.
Thank you so much.
Wow! This is talking to me in a way, though I’ve not broken and been broken I just love my art more than anything else. This is awesome.
Thanks so much, glad it resonated with you.
