Don’t Fall in Love With a Writer

Don't fall in love with a writer, 
a dreamer, a poet.  

They'll pour out 
their heart on paper, 

scribbling promises of love, 
riches and nights spent in bliss.  

This idealist, would rather be in 
the imaginary world they've created, 

weaving magical spells 
and capturing imaginations.  

In this world, every moment can be 
the romantic rapture we all seek, 

or the excitement 
of adventures untold.  

They spend their time daydreaming of 
the next chapter, the next verse.  

You see, reality could never measure up 
to the fantasies they create 
for themselves.  

Don't fall in love
with a writer.

Have you ever encountered that waitress, bank teller, sales clerk or other person that works in the public eye that just has a dead-pan look on their face?  Like those sullen Creatures at Walmart that MIGHT utter a hello if you poke them real hard with a sharp stick?  You know what I mean, we see them all the time, right?

Are You Immune?

I’ve written some dark things lately.  I received a comment from someone about it that I found hurtful.

He said he couldn’t believe that he had spent time with someone that would even think such things.

There isn’t a person alive that doesn’t have dark thoughts.  Those thoughts may not be a murder mystery plot, but there are still all kinds of dark thoughts.
