How to Identify a Writer in Love

 

You must understand, my dearest, that I am a writer. I am not a pragmatist. 

 

When I say that I love you, my feelings are far deeper and far more complicated. 

 

When I say I would die for you, my idea of death is twisted and not made of any form of repentance at all. 

 

When I say I would kill for you, it's not just metaphorical or metaphysical murder I speak of.

 

When I say I adore you, I shall find plot points on your body and use my hands as a pen to navigate them.

 

When I say you are the only one for me, you will be all I eat, sleep and drink... for many years to come.

 

But when I say I find you more poignant than the moment I stood above Mary Shelly's grave, tears streaming down my cheeks, overwhelmed by the emotions that welled inside my body... then I must find you very poignant indeed.
