The Love of a Writer

The love of a writer runs deep as the words she puts to paper.
She scrutinizes every paragraph, every sentence, trying to make sure that it conveys the exact magnitude of emotions she holds.
She wastes hours hunched over her desk, fervently scribbling yet another love poem that he will never read.
She holds a pen in place of his hand. Endless amounts of ink flow as she continually tries to convince herself that he will fall for the words she has written about him.

The love of a writer is the simultaneous source of her pain and pleasure.
She cries herself to sleep with the agony, yet this pain fuels her art, her will to keep writing.
She feels deadened inside—empty—yet she finds inspiration in excruciating pain, that makes her feel alive.
She is a juxtaposition of contrasts.
Committing all emotion to permanence, with her pen and paper, immortalizing her affection in every line –
The love of a writer is lasting.

Ela is a twentysomething who is constantly getting stuck in self-destructive behavior and bouts of low self-esteem. She struggles with depression and writes to relieve herself of her feelings. Sometimes she even blogs about other things like makeup and positivity. One of her pieces was published in the Inquirer Young Blood in October 2017. She likes cats, dogs, and sometimes even people.
