To be loved by a writer is one thing,

To be loathed by a writer is another. 

You can never escape it. 

Her words will haunt you to your grave. 

Her name is up in the lights. 

And you’re just a muse for her page. 

You get a mention in the dedication,

But you’re so un-noticeable it’s missed. 

No one reads the dedications anyway. 

And you’ll never stop thinking about this.
