How To Love a Writer

First Edition

How To Love a Writer

the problem with

being a poet in love,

is that you savour

& trust each word your lover has

without question.

we are simply in love

with bare literature,

spoken from the lips of someone we hold

in higher regard

than ourselves sometimes.

when you love a poet

each word you utter,

should be a piece of artwork

each sentence,

a highly thought out structure of awe and beauty to leave us seeping

in the warmth of your voice

caressing such fine words

so when deciding that you love someone,

who writes or reads

fill their souls with beauty, memories & truth especially,

for a poet's heart breaks at ease.
