Awake on strong, black coffee drinks
Words on paper, liquid ink
Dreams of pen tips, future lies
Tragic stories, quotes of the wise
Nights have carved their dark, deep valleys
In the hollows of my eyes

For you see, my friend, when writers cry
There are no tears, their cheeks are dry
But ink dipped fingers, worn out wrists
Chewed up nails and bloody fists

You see, it's strange when writers cry
Their hearts are true, their words don’t lie
They mourn in silence for a few days
Of paper cuts and tear-less haze

Of coffee mugs and smoky paper
Liquid spills, and water vapor
Sorry dreams and wasted hours
Putrid smells and dying flowers

(Torn to pieces from inside
Tears are hidden by our pride)

That's us. Miserable, misunderstood but still eager to write our problems away.

The best works of art, ore ones that you can feel the emotion from.
Emotion, the essence of art, without it, it will be nothing, not even a blank canvas, just... nothing. You have done a great job of not just showing this by your story, but your tone as well, this is truly something to tresure.
