i was chatting with a lady, yesterday. a lady i don’t know very well. maybe it was her sense of anonymity that gave her the courage to open up to me. maybe it was her profound need to open up to someone. but we got to chatting about life. about love. about… unrequited love. as she spoke, the tears sparked in her eyes. and she said, he and i can never be together. and inside my heart, i knew that she asked herself: how will i ever survive this without losing my mind?

forbidden love is… obsession. it is implicit to us humans to desire and crave… unto insanity… what we know we can’t have.
