TV Line: How long did it take you to write it?
Blake: I didn’t want to sell it short. I mean, anybody can take a piece of paper and be like, “roses are red and violets are blue” and all that stuff, but I really wanted to show who I was through the poem. So it took me the entire night. I went to bed pretty late, while everybody else around me was asleep. I had my light on by my bed, and I was just writing, making corrections, scratching out lines that I didn’t like, and I was just really perfecting it because I wanted it to display the real me.
