    But never doubt I love.”
    William Shakespeare, Hamlet

    W.H. Auden
    “As I walked out one evening,
    Walking down Bristol Street,
    The crowds upon the pavement
    Were fields of harvest wheat.

    And down by the brimming river
    I heard a lover sing
    Under an arch of the railway:
    "Love has no ending.

    "I'll love you, dear, I'll love you
    Till China and Africa meet,
    And the river jumps over the mountain
    And the salmon sing in the street,

    "I'll love till the ocean
    Is folded and hung up to dry
    And the seven stars go squawking
    Like geese about the sky.

    "The years shall run like rabbits,
    For in my arms I hold
    The Flower of the Ages,
    And the first love of the world."

    But all the clocks in the city
    Began to whirr and chime:
    "O let not Time deceive you,
    You cannot conquer Time.

    "In the burrows of the Nightmare
    Where Justice naked is,
    Time watches from the shadow
    And coughs when you would kiss.

    "In headaches and in worry
    Vaguely life leaks away,
    And Time will have his fancy
    Tomorrow or today.

    "Into many a green valley
    Drifts the appalling snow;
    Time breaks the threaded dances
    And the diver's brilliant bow.

    "O plunge your hands in water,
    Plunge them in up to the wrist;
    Stare, stare in the basin
    And wonder what you've missed.

    "The glacier knocks in the cupboard,
    The desert sighs in the bed,
    And the crack in the teacup opens
    A lane to the land of the dead.

    "Where the beggars raffle the banknotes
    And the Giant is enchanting to Jack,
    And the Lily-white Boy is a Roarer,
    And Jill goes down on her back.

    "O look, look in the mirror,
    O look in your distress;
    Life remains a blessing
    Although you cannot bless.

    "O stand, stand at the window
    As the tears scald and start;
    You shall love your crooked neighbor
    With all your crooked heart."

    It was late, late in the evening,
    The lovers they were gone;
    The clocks had ceased their chiming,
    And the deep river ran on.”
    W.H. Auden

    “There's nothing like deep breaths after laughing that hard. Nothing in the world like a sore stomach for the right reasons.”
    Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower
