"Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow."

The problem with love
is that it never lasts long enough
Truth gets in the way;
A new girl,
A new guy,
and the flame dies out.
Love is a sort of hope
A sort of dream for the future
If love is hope,
Break-ups are reality.

What things there are to write, if only one could write them! My mind is full of gleaming thought; gay moods and mysterious, moth-like meditations hover in my imagination, fanning their painted wings. But always the rarest, those streaked with azure and the deepest crimson, flutter away beyond my reach. ~Logan Pearsall Smith

why doesn't it last?  it should.  are you giving enough?  love outlasts everything.  if it didn't seem to go on, then it wasn't love.  the poem was beautiful, the words were so sad.  and although i really like it, i so totally disagree.
