Do not fall in love with a poetess because
she will immortalize you with mind blowing
adjectives and all things vintage.
She will write all your flaws and build bridges
over broken paths.
Bury your head under a poetic cloud and
embroider stories about you on quilts.
She will then scribble rhymes on your
nude skin and declare you a classic.
A poetess will analyze every piece of you
and make you her muse.
You will be her source of inspiration; her
poetry vault for future pieces.
She will discover parts of you that you never
thought existed; tickle hidden emotions that
you hide so well.
The way your smile illuminates the room.
The bags under your eyes at dusk’s caress.
The way your eye brows furrow when you’re
lost in deep thought.
Your lyrical outbursts and wit in the presence
of mind stimulating conversations.
She will obsess about your pet peeves, and
romanticize your perks.
Fall in love in love with a poetess at your
own risk because she has a sad soul.
She wears the scars of a thousand heart
breaks; constantly battles with her emotions
and struggles with moodiness and insomnia.
She sees the world for what it is yet chooses
to remain hopeful and optimistic.
Her words bleed out of her skin and her sorrows
are preserved on parchments of paper.
You will eventually hate the poetry engraved
on her soul.
You might despise the poetess that she is-
yet desire her essence of femininity and love her
as a woman.
But to her, you’ll be the love of her life- her
Her lips will tremble when she speaks of you
because she’ll love you with her heart, soul,
mind and body.
She won’t let go unless you do.
Do not fall in love with a poetess because she
She’ll cherish your imperfections and love each scar.
She will piss you off with her brutal honesty and
She is a nutcase, so she won’t prescribe to any bullshit.
She will pay attention to you and make you a priority.
She will take in everything you say like it’s the gospel
truth because she trusts and believes in you.
She will inhale your fiery soul like her addiction to
literature and soul music.
She will write odes to you; praise you in prose and
poetry like you’re the greatest thing that ever walked
the face of the earth.
She will dedicate sweet music to your heart, serenade
you because she’s a love exhibitionist and a
Your picture will be painted on the hardcover of poetry
anthologies and your love will be stamped on the front
page of writing blogs and poetry magazines.
You will inspire people you’ve never met.
You’ll be on a love overdose.
You will feel intoxicated yet contented- for a poetess
knows no restraint when it comes to passion.
Falling in love with a poetess means falling in love with
her Poetry- loving her soul, reading her heart and
understanding her mind.
Anything short of that dims her star.
In a world filled with so much hate and mediocrity, you’ll
be her light in the darkness; her earth if the love is true.
For a poetess’s love is real-genuine and authentic.
She loves hard.
Do not fall in love with a poetess like me unless you
know what you want.
But… you can follow the trail of my poetic footprints.
You just might feel my presence with each verse…
