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.
