Everyone has a book. It's their life, figuratively. Etched onto the pages of a book. But you write it as you go. In the choices you make. The things you do, say. Who you love, who loves you.
And yes, others will feature in your book. Some will put the pen back in your hand when you feel you can no longer write.
Some will be able to read your story by the look on your face, what you show by the way you act, what you say.
Or maybe that's you.
Maybe some of us write in invisible ink or in a language others can't understand.
You can't just erase some of the words or tear out the pages you no longer like.
Don't let someone else take over your job as Author. Don't let anyone take the pen away for you. And don't let others try control your narrative by deciding who or what can feature in your masterpiece.
In life, you'll find an actual book, or someone's story that you will fall in love with. A book that will become your bible. But make sure it's a hard copy, a hard cover, not the pages of someone's life, kissed with their story.
I know you fell in love with my story, or lack thereof. The way you couldn't decipher it, or even see the words at first.
You like the mystery, the suspense. The way you never knew what was coming next.
You fell in love with the subject matter
But not the author.
I just wonder if this is the end of a chapter, or of my entire book. Because yes, you are a part of my story.
Sorry, weird analogies and comparisons. But whatever, I'm no poet-Just a 'beautiful', fu*cked up, insecure, neurotic, emotional, insecure mess- sorry to disappoint.
