Reader Writer


What has the world come to when dreams don’t come true?
Won’t always get it right, but I’ve still gotta try.
The closer I get to naming the corners of your mind, the sooner I’ll know where we stand.
You don’t have to feel anymore, that’s what you have me for.
Let me put some thought into you.

When I can’t read her, I write her.
Blurring the lines.
Reader Writer, here we go again.

Reader Writer, give me something to go on.
Gave you what you need, supply & demand.
You win, but then again you always do.
Didn’t mean to change your mind or make you forget your hesitation.
Always pushing through the words you say, in hopes that you don’t love in a black & white world.
Do you want to flip through our history books together?

When I can’t read her, I write her.
Blurring the lines.
Reader Writer, let me ease your mind.

Captured by another unexpected feeling on the verge of becoming real.
No, you’re not alone.
I can’t be like everybody, I can’t tell you what you want to hear.
Cus I just invited myself into your life like Sunshine.
And now that I’ve got you, I’m gonna need you all the time.

When I can’t read her, I write her.
Blurring the lines.
Reader Writer, put it down again.

Quotes: Write Drunk; Edit Sober (Remix)


“Write drunk; edit sober.” -Earnest Hemingway

“Write drunk — drunken with emotion. Whether in love or pain; hatred or joy, write intoxicated and completely wasted in the moment.

Edit sober — when all the winds have calmed, and when your eyes are cleared from the poison of life. Clean it up and make your pain presentable.” -Brittany Rose (elaborating on Hemingway)

This quote describes how I approach writing poetry.
