or a writer wants you to read what they’ve written
it’s quite often an expression of trust
because a poem or a story or a painting are often things that come from the heart
little pieces of the artists themselves
and if they’re willing to share it with you
you should appreciate it
Except they never appreciate it
they'll be 'too busy' or 'not care'
and if you can get them to somehow read it by standing over their shoulder and watching them
they get done and say
'okay' or 'that was good' dismissively
they take your heart and shatter it, invalidate your entire existence
yet you'll always try again even knowing it will always be the same
NOW GET THE f*ck OFF TUMBLR IF YOU'RE GOING TO PREACH TO THE f*ckING CHOIR YOU STUPID f*ck.
