da5ec0f73a1d0a745155da12928afbfbDo not fall in love with a writer
unless you are willing to open yourself
to the inevitability of their description
for at first with the best harvest
the vintage will be sweet and lingering
with notes of honey and wild
as sure seasons turn
their fingers pressed on your pulse
will catch the days of sorrow
blurred behind storm
and reading yourself
isn’t for the faint hearted
or those without touchstone
it is like a ship wrecked out to sea
blown far off course
losing compass
be weary of how you are understood
when the painter dips their brush
seeking inspiration

  1. This is a beautiful piece! So True!! The cider has more bite the longer it ferments!
    Thank you for checking in with my blog. I was wondering why I wasn’t seeing your posts. Somehow your site got unfollowed. Looking forward to reading more of you posts. Dwight

  2. Ya know, I’ve thought about this quite often. But all writers write of what and who they know! So it’s inevitable that each of us will appear in some way and some point in time in another’s work.

  3. It’s such a fine line to walk. Between allowing true honesty/good art and exposing or possibly hurting the person you love. It is very difficult. Journaling helps but for me that leads to poetry. It’s a dilemma
