The girlfriend of a creative genius

Being the girlfriend of a creative genius is hard.

Sometimes I find myself wondering why I put up with him. There are moments when I feel like he cares more about his work than me. Of course, it's true, but that's the price you pay for being the girlfriend of a creative genius.

He's not always going to be there for me. Sometimes he might not speak to me for days. It doesn't mean he doesn't love me. It just means he's busy. He has a great idea that he just can't leave alone. He gets sucked in, he doesn't even think about me. It's not a conscious thing. He always apologises afterwards.

And I always forgive him, because I'm the girlfriend of a creative genius.

He's promised me that someday we'll get married. It hasn't happened yet. We've got close several times, but something always comes up. He's unpredictable, a little moody, and extremely fickle. Maybe we never will, but that's okay, because I'm the girlfriend of a creative genius.

Nobody understands him like me. My family and friends, his family (he doesn't have any friends), and his publisher don't get him. He refuses to attend talk show interviews and important book signings. He's regarded as a literary recluse. People always ask me why I put up with him. Sometimes I forget (it's hard being the girlfriend of a creative genius), but I always know deep down.

It's because we're in love.
