My Love

My Love

A Poem by Thomas W Case
"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KjeCroHYQxU Here is a link to my you tube channel where I read my poetry.

"
Writing is my love that
never betrays.
It doesn't lie or
cheat.
It never complains that I
leave the toilet seat up or
that I leave hairs in the sink.
It has never said, "You drink too much or
not enough." It always wins the bets,
sets the sun, and skins the cat.
It's always raw and never
well done, medium rare at
worst, and never burnt.
It doesn't ask me to
do aerobics or yoga, and it
would never tell me to quit smoking.
I would stake my life on it.
Writing is my love that
will be with me until
the end.

I feel sad for those who don't have writing, art, or other activity that they can be passionate about. When life goes sour for them, they'll at least need to have some very good friends to pull them through. We creative folks, on the other hand, can delve into a world where all things are possible. I like the words you've written.

The writing always calls the writer back; like a lover that hates to say goodbye. I enjoyed the read. Good work, Thomas.

Thank you so much, Samuel. I appreciate it.
You are so right. Writing, if you keep at it, will not desert you. Of course, if mine ever starts whining about the toilet seat, I might have to slap the b***h.
