This beautiful poem by Astropistachio is essential for anyone who’s ever experienced unrequited love.
I wrote this for someone who was going through love withdrawal symptoms, by remembering something similar that I had experienced.
A love that felt so true and strong,
A love that could not be,
but for a time,
A love that felt like fate and destiny.
A song for constant strangers,
and unrequited love.
A song for heart connections,
My life was changed the day we saw’
that brilliant shining star.
We witnessed it together.
You so distant, so far.
Although I never met you,
I thought you really cared.
The ecstatic joyous feelings
I thought we really shared.
I thought I really knew you,
and that you really cared.
This love, this poignant feeling.
This pain of loves descent.
From soaring heights to emptiness,
A gift of love now spent.
From bliss and happiness,
to bruised heart,
questioning what it meant.
When all was said,

Semmelweiss had a really great slow idea, one that would radically challenge the medical status quo of the time. Semmelweiss made a logical scientific observation about the rampant incidence of childbed fever, … Continue reading Slow Ideas

I have always loved animals. When I was about 3 years old, I was fascinated with a beautiful collie that lived in my building. This dog did not like people, but I loved him. I distinctly remember one day running around him, hugging, petting and talking to him, and I remember hearing him growl (he … Continue reading Wolves
