Date an artist. Date an artist because when you notice a disfigured spot on your face she will be able to turn it into a flower. Date an artist because the rainy days that make you want to stay inside are actually play days for her and she will drag you out by your low self esteem and make it blossom so great that the sun is forcing itself to come out just to see it. Date an artist because while you’re asleep at 2 in the morning she will be in her bed, staring at the ceiling, thinking about every curve of your smile and every flip of your hair.
You know the girl you’re thinking about. The one that takes her old wine bottles and turns them into stain glass vases. The girl who no one really knows but they all see her artwork displayed in he library because her art teacher is obsessed with bragging about her star student. The girl who spends hours on something she made for you because it’s never quite right and it has to be perfect so you’ll love it; so you’ll love her.
Date an artist. Date an artist because she’ll notice the little things. She’ll see the way you bite your pencil while you’re sitting in class because you’re hoping the teacher won’t call on you. She’ll go crazy about the way you look after you take a nap because for once you aren’t putting on a different face for everyone else to see. She’ll look at your hands, see the bite marks on your nails, the bruises on your knuckles. She’ll run her hand along the vein that’s in the middle of your left ring finger because she knows its the only vein there that runs straight to your heart.
Date an artist. Date an artist because she will take you on adventures. She’ll take you on picnics to abandoned houses and make you stand in front of a graffiti filled wall so she can take a picture of you. She will take you downtown on a below freezing night because the sky is a pretty color that night and it reminds her of your eyes.
Date an artist because she will always surprise you. She will show up at your house on the day before your birthday with your gift because she knows you won’t be expecting it. Date an artist because she wont get offended when you tell her you don’t feel like talking. She’ll go home and tell you a stupid joke hours later because she knows you’re a sucker for corny jokes.
Date an artist. For gods sake dating an artist is the healthiest thing for you to do other than taking your vitamins and drinking 8 glasses of water everyday. Date an artist because she has a perfect vocabulary but for some reason when she’s in front of you she stutters like she has never spoken English a day in her life. Date an artist because she will love you more than anyone else and she will stop at nothing to see your soul. She will dig so deep into your head that by the third date she could name everything you love in alphabetical order. Date an artist because while you can find a couple reasons why you hate yourself she can find ten more why you shouldn’t. Date an artist because when you’re gone from her life, pictures of you will still be in her sketchbook. Date an artist because she’ll be up at 12 in the morning writing a random poem that originally meant nothing but by the end of it, she’s only thinking of you. Date an artist because she’ll make you fall in love with her before she ever realizes how much she’s in love with you."
