the thing they forgot to mention
about being a writer
is that we all live the longest
and die the fastest.

we feast on metaphors
with numb fingers and hearts
until we crawl under a half moon to sleep
and just don't wake up,
because everything we are
is arranged in our work
and we start to become
everything we've written about, 
slowly but surely. 

and now i'm not so sure
if i want to be a poet.
i just know
that i want to be a writer.

"we all live the longest

Never has this been truer of the most famous writers. Although it can be said of certain celebrities as well.
