Dear Reader:

by MyHalozChokinMe   Jan 9, 2013

I feel like I was born into this.

I write therefore I am.

I did not choose to be a writer.

It's an exorcism.

My mind pours, and the page
soaks up my demons.

They're locked inside,
they're read,
they become your demons.

For a moment,
we are connected,

Intellectual intercourse takes us away.

I'm yours, you're mine.

Lover to lover.

Writer to reader.

    Might as well add a third comment to this purely to bump it up high so that newer members can marvel at its genius.

    I have read this 3 or 4 times now and I am honestly blown away at such strength of writing contained in such a small piece.
    I cannot think of a better way of describing poetry writing than this. Line 2 is absolutely genius. So 'matter of fact' but so true. I also think the term 'intellectual intercourse' is brilliant.
    The whole thing has such a professional polish about it.
    It is clever how the author suggests that reading her poetry is her sharing her demons with you. They climb inside your head and become your demons too. It compliments the word choice 'exorcism' earlier on. But the best thing is we are shown poetry as something different, it does become our demon. I bet everybody on this site can think of a poem that effected them in some way that they read as a child. Great write.

    This is perfect. I totally love this. Every piece of it was completely true, and I've never read anything that expressed something like this.

    Imagery evoked by the closeness of the writer and reader - total perfection.
