Absorb the constant rejection and occasional acceptance.
Dine on the diet of loneliness, pain and vulnerability.
Give away your deepest, darkest fears.
Watch yourself bleed.
Pour your soul on the page.
Weave your hopes and dreams into the tapestry of a story.
Wait for the applause, obscenities or the worse possible response—silence.
But take solace in what unites us:
All of Which quietly collide one word at a time.
