We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.

When you think about someone for so long then all of a sudden it is taken away from you what do you think about? Deep inside you want to think about them, but you feel like you are intruding. You feel as though they don’t want your thoughts to be there. You know you shouldn’t think about them, you should move on. Try and think of someone else that voice in your head says, but it doesn’t feel the same. It’s like trying to fit a square block into a circular hole. You try and occupy your mind with trivial thoughts about your day, but in the back of your head there are thoughts about that person waiting for a pause in your small talk so they can sink in. No thoughts. Empty. January 13, 2010 he rejected my love. What do I think about now?
