do not marry a writer.
their only love is a pen,
or weapon of choice.
their only home is the mind.

do not marry a writer.
they will leave you for hours,
lost in different worlds.
pulling them out is like waking a sleepwalker.

dangerous.
they will never live the same moment again.
thoughts are lightning quick,
and will never strike the same place more than once.

marry a writer.
only if you want your body
transformed into words.

do not marry a writer.
if you are a flower
requiring constant watering.
you will die, and we will turn your ashes into l e t t e r s.

but marry a writer,
if you want to live forever.
you know when you're in your own little writer's world and people require your attention and trying to leave that world is painful.

writers are curious and observant. but inherently selfish. (you can't lock yourself in your room for days when you have a family).

not inspired by this but my friend sent it to me some months ago and it's beautiful, and just a little relevant: hellopoetry.com/poem/never-fal…

ok you guys, I am not giving dead serious advice like "dO NOT MARRY A WRITER EVER". It is a poem, it is full of metaphors. Marry a writer. Marry whoever you like. I'm literally just saying that if you marry an artist, or are just with one, they will need lots of time alone whenever they get inspiration and if you can't deal with leaving them be for a while, then I mean that's your problem.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR THE FAVOURITES!!! MY HEART (ego) IS OVERWHELMED WITH GRATITUDE :heart:

Wow.... This is phenomenal.  You painted a wonderfully complete picture of a writer.  You did an awesome job.  The last two lines particularly resonate with me, because my boyfriend writes about me a lot. ^^;

It's great, it holds a lot of truths and I really like the last two lines. I feel they are especially true because artists are often inspired by those closest to them.

Great poem!! :) I'm a writer too and I do this sometimes... just like disappear behind my laptop typing like mad and no one can get to me. But at the same time I'm not like that all the time... so I guess it's kind true for all writers but can vary :)

Of course! We're all different. I'm not like that all the time (that'd be insanity).
Thank you :D

totally.. my freinds would never see my face and they'd be really mad and think i'm boring beyond compare. Then I'd get all rich and famous but live lonely. I hope on one's entirely like this..
