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 :)

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..

Haha even if I was rich, I'd still retreat into my (awesome) house for days and days. Then I'd end up in another country and retreat there until I want to explore. 
I feel like I bore a lot of people because I'm always in my head. And because I don't want to ask questions that I don't like to be asked, which is almost always things people ask during a conversation...like..."so tell me about yourself"...*cringe*

lol yeah, i can be sorta social so I would get lonely after a bit but Im glad it'd work for you :D and i do bore some of my friends cause now I'm typing tons when I have the chance. I'm doing that now in my free time which happens to be the time with my friends cause I'm busy with writing and tennis and stuff. And don't worry, I don't ask that questions anyway unless someone asks me :D

Haha well I need to socialize too sometimes, but I definitely need alone time more often and for a longer time.
I don't ask them unless I'm asked them first. ;P

Honestly, I feel like I should show this to anyone who wants to be my friend. I am a very social introvert. So sometimes even during conversation, including the ones that interest me or I really care about, I zone out and start thinking about things. And suddenly realise that that would be a wonderful thing to write. When I come back to the real world, all I'm thinking is about the time when the conversation would pause and I could take out my cell phone to write that down. But then I feel bad at times because I'd hate it if someone else did that to me.

Now, when he reads this, and sees what he's REALLY getting-
