A Thesis of Love

What would I study if not creative writing?

Well I love studying languages, or maybe linguistics, photography maybe, graphic design?  I do love studying this. But in all honesty if anything was on the table what would I choose?


I’d study the good and the bad. What makes people fall in love? What makes them fall out of love?

I would study why people in love hurt each other, why they hurt themselves. How the body changes when someone feels loved.

How one expresses love. All the different ways. Why we as humans can’t just tell another why we love them. Why it’s hard to accept love from people.

The differences between hatred and love and why you can’t have one without the other.

Love at first sight.

The history of love. Like the Greek mythology of having two heads, four legs, four arms, but one heart. The humans got too powerful and scared Zeus so he split them in half. It’s so romantic and definitely scientifically questionable. But the fact that they knew even then how powerful love was. So dangerous it scared even the most powerful god.

I’d learn about why we’re so obsessed with love. Why it’s all some people look for in life, and why some people try to avoid it.

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in 
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere 
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done 
by only me is your doing,my darling) 
                                                      i fear 
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want 
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true) 
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant 
and whatever a sun will always sing is you 
here is the deepest secret nobody knows 
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud 
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows 
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide) 
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart 
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
