They learn to yearn
cool and burn
think only of themselves.
Strangle you for thinking too much
or not thinking enough.
Pull you to one person then the next,
barely getting a breath that lasts
because you’re pulled under the ocean of
love.
They don’t last forever and are made
for your use, but controls you more
than you control it.

Such tumultuous instances are what i crave to feel. Despite aches and bruises, i want more. What happened leading up to January of 2009 to mold your outlook?

Wow. This is very good. I love how it just seems to capture a reader's attention from the first line on this poem. :)
