Lately my interest in animals has been coming back. I find myself searching YouTube for documentaries on uncommon animals or clicking through links from NatGeo to some random website and learning about purple frogs or cuttlefish or whatever weird fish are out there. And I’ve been searching photos and gifs and videos of pandas and cats just to keep me sane amidst all the stress. Ah, these are my stress relievers.
I wrote this poem last night. I was listening to the soundtrack for Like Crazy, which just so happens to be one of my favorite movies. I just got inspired by the raw depiction of love in that movie and how I’ve never experienced it. This was the end product. I guess the only thing I can really say is that if you’ve never been in love, like me, your time is coming.
