I am a deadly murderer
I am a crazy psychopath
I am a gentle ruler
I am a war-driven tyrant
I am a secretive assassin
I am a jealous lover
I am a tortured soul
I am a ruthless god

I am manipulative
I am all-mighty
I am powerful
I am omnipotent
I am murderous
I am loving

I make sweet dreams
I make terrifying nightmares
I make tender moments
I make anguished deaths

I am the one
I am their god

I am a writer.
If you write, you are a god. Or goddess, whatever. You rule your characters' lives, you make or break them. You build them up and let them fall. You let them fall in love, then let them watch their lover die. You force their hand, or let them choose. You are the all-powerful writer.

Wow, that's a weird feeling. I am all-powerful! :evillaugh:

Lol, as long as you have fun doing it, and you give them a happy ending all in all, then you can do what you like!

Edit: :omg: Wow! I never expected this to be so popular! Thanks so much for all the faves and comments!

As God, you are nothing but a continuance of progression. A driving force that means nothing without a base.

I have to admit, now i can bring this poem up when my family and friends argue that i am not a goddess. And then their arguement will be invalid. Writers really do control what happens in the world... well... in story worlds... maybe.

Anyway, good job. I really liked it!!!!!!!! :D

This is just fabulous, and I can't believe how much it rings truth to my ears whenever I read it. I read it once, twice, and it never gets old. That's what your readers love about this. Being a writer, I am all this. I really am, except I never thought of it this way. Thanks for making me think this way. I guess, I really rule my character's lives. I am even more powerful than I thought, when I think of it this way.

Thank you :D I really appreciate the comments. I never realised when I posted this that it would have so much meaning for people. It's strange to think I've had an effect on people like this - but then again, what's writing for?

(And thanks muchly for the cookie ;P)

You're welcome. It has a lot of meaning. I never really found out what I was - the only thing I said was that I was a writer. But then I began to wonder ... what is it that makes me a writer? Do I just write words like that, or is there something else, something more than that?

And you're welcome!~

Until they start to argue with you and try to give you dating advice when they are off-duty.

If my characters gave dating advice... well, it wouldn't be pretty. They're mostly as socially-challenged as I am. I'd love to know what dating advice your characters are giving you :D

Do you have another one that talks about an artist? the one who draws?? I would be delighted to read something like this that's related to that.
This is so epic btw. :D

No, I haven't written any others, although an artist's one would be brilliant. I'm not really an artist in that sense (I can't draw to save my life ;P) so I don't think I'd be the best person to write it. Still, I definitely agree it would be great to read one like that.
