This was Poem of the Day over on another site...and I thought it worth sharing...I have a feeling more than a few here can relate...and I wish I wrote this one myself btw...

I wish a writer loved me

I wish a writer loved me.
I would like to know how my hair falls, how my lips taste, or
how my eyes demand the truth.
How my laughter fills hearts, or how softly I breathe when I sleep.
He would use adjectives like "Divine" and
Nouns like "Royalty"
I would wake up to poems that had been written because he was too nervous
to read them aloud.
I wouldn't mind a shaky voice.
I wish a writer loved me because then I know that I would live forever in his heart like the words he would serenade me with.
A writer's love? Unparalleled,
and I speak from experience.

Wow. That one is good. What do you know about the writer? It reminded me of this (same inspiration I believe, but different spirit):

Nobody will ever love you as much as an artist can.
On your worst days,
they will find poetry in your body,
consume you until you are complete
and strong enough to face the world
once more.
No one will ever love you
as much as me.

That is good. Both of them.

I don't know...did a quick Google search, and I get a lot of this...it's a frequently posted quote, and I do have the patience at the moment to figure out the actual author...do you know?

Sillly, anyone that knows poetry knows that poem. What do you know about the author of the poem that "you" presented? She's good. I couldn't find her anywhere.

EDIT: I found her blog.

Lol...I don't know it...tell us? And your EDIT note doesn't seem to have a link...not sure if that's intentional...
