I Hate Being A Writer

“I hate being a writer” – I used to always say to myself. I feel too much. Words tend to flow uncontrollably. And it sucks.

I hate being a writer (W O R D S)

Sometimes, I hate being a writer. I always tend to write it down than to say it out loud.

Sometimes, I hate being a writer. Someone who can use words well and let readers give meaning to them.

Sometimes, I hate being a writer. It’s like formulating words so that it can make them feel happy and hurt, different.

The reader loves your words.
They love what we pour from our minds.
They sometimes even use your words against us.

You pour, you puke,
you tell all of it on a sheet of paper.
All the words,
it barely holds.
Then time will come,
there are no more words to write.
Then you will write about it again,
what holds you back,
why do your hands look so tired?
Then you pour, you puke,
you tell all of it, again.
All the words,
it holds them barely.
Until you use your tears to write,
your blood to write,
your soul to write,
but there are still no words for it.

But it just words, formed by combining letters,
you, the reader,
are the one who interprets them.

Do not love my words, please.
Wait until that day comes when you feel my actions, and not
how you fell in love with my words.
