When you fall in love with a writer

you fall in love with

ink stained fingers,

a heart stitched together

by their favorite quotes,

and

scribbled up journals

half filled with

well thought out rhymes...

 

You fall in love with

late night reading

and

buying more books

than they could ever finish

 

You fall in love with

half asleep spoken prose

and

love notes filled

with the sincerest words

any dictionary

could ever fatham having in it

 

You fall in love with

thoughts that echo as melodies

throughout the house

and

play along the walls

of your ear canal

like a symphony...

with secrets written

in between pages

that eyes have never seen

and

with words their lips

never quite learned how to form

less only

how to speak a loud...

 

When you fall in love with a writer

you fall in love with

writers block

writing through it

only to get blocked again...

ripped up pages

that never amounted to much,

broken pencils,

lost pens,

lost ambition

that was caused by a

forgotten line

 

When you fall in love with a writer

you fall in love with

a bunch of random words

that don't quite make sense

but

are written none the less...

with a jumbled mess

of incomplete prose

that has become a reflection

of their life

 

When you fall in love with a writer

you fall in love with me
