how to love a writer:
don't. 

because we 
will turn your passion
into works of extended metaphors 
for death and decay,
slipping you scars
served sunny-side-up because, 
hey, we all want to be
fixed, right?

not writers. 
writers want someone, anyone 
(usually the wrong one, 
because pain sells more than
smiles)
to try and pour cement 
into the dents inside them
until they realize that they're really just
abandoned sidewalks 
located in the wrong side of town
that cannot be repaired. 

that is what we do.
we break people
for a living.

That sidewalk metaphor is getting to me. Your words are lyrical and pure perfection.

I disagree.  A writer is meant to tell the truth for the betterment of himself and the people around him and although it might hurt a person to tell them what is bad about them it is the harshest but if well received, one of the most beautiful forms of love.

A writer will pick you apart, peel out all of the horrible parts of you, and then share them with the universe. And then smile at you that evening and ask how your day was.

I love this.

Aahhhh too relatable especially the whole "Because pain sells more than smiles". I write humorous poetry for the most part but ti rarely sees as much attention as sorrow. you've really captured the painful side of being a writer (ironically enough). Bravo.

I really like this.

it's so undeniably true

 

"pain sells more than smiles"

I've always thought so but I never wanted to be the one to say it

 

the whole thing is very direct and powerful
