A poem about a writer (a fictional character) who has been writing solely about the same two themes: depression and love, over and over again. The house of course, is a symbol for the writer's creative mind, which is now decaying from writing upon only those two themes.

The title came first before the poem itself. It was one of those things that latched onto my mind and wouldn't let go.

Just to clarify "the writer" is not referring to me. 

Edit: So this is my second DD and I've got to say that seeing it with the DD banner really surprised me at first. Anyway thank you and thanks also to any who faved or were kind enough to leave a comment.

I've tried too many times to say this eloquently, but it's three in the morning, so I'm just going to be straightforward: the word choices were so beautiful I had to stop each stanza to just let my mind picture the images you painted. I'm going to come back to this every time I need inspiration for anything so I can try to capture the same feeling I just had reading this the first time. Thank you so much for writing such a beautiful poem.

There is no critique window and i really want to criticise this. But we both know that your skill is growing fast.

I felt that writer succeeded in not only stirring our emotions but painted a dark word picture in our minds itself. Very captivating.

you've got a good meter going, but the punctuation is waaaaay too much. use your line breaks and meter and drop a lot of the punctuation and you've got something quite good here
