Dating a writer

Writers will live on your every word
They’ll listen to what you say
And understand what you mean
By deciphering the breaths in between
They’ll feel every syllable that escapes your lips
Hear the words behind the stand
Behind the crossed arms
And bathroom walls
They’ll know even before you do
What you really said
They’ll spend all night and all day
Thinking of the right words to say
Despite the fact the conversation’s passed
They’ll debate if it was just a slip of the tongue
A heated response
But every word no matter how small
Has a minute truth to it all
And if you leave some sort of blank
If you leave a fragment behind closed doors
Rest assured the writer’s coming up with every possible ending phrase
To finish off the dialogue

  1. I think they just might! 😉 I really love this, it’s very different!

    I was wondering if I could publish this brilliant poem of yours in the next issue of a free online literary magazine of mine?

    It’s a new website and only has two issues published at the moment, but it’s received a lot of attention and Facebook/Twitter shares/likes. I’m hoping it will build a good readership quite quickly. It’s free for anyone to read and the aim is primarily to help promote writers on websites and blogs from all over the internet.

    The copyright remains with the writer and I always include a link back to where the work was originally published and also any other social media links you’d like me to include (please let me know which ones – if you have any).

    If you would be interested in allowing me to publish your work please check out the magazine and let me know your decision. But if you’d rather not, don’t hesitate to say no, I really won’t mind.
    Suzy :o)
