The reflection in the Mirror is no longer broken,
The flower in Bloom no longer stained,
The song that I Sing is no longer sad,
The Unconditional love I feel is no longer strained.

The Supernova I see is an explosion of desire,
The Unknown no longer compels me to fear,
If a Hospital is where I seal my fate,
Let it be known I died loving You, my dear.
It's official: The normally melancholy, cynical, and deep writer you've come to know has been replaced by a hopeless romantic dolt.
So sue me.
I'm in love.

That being said, I haven't lost my edge just yet. When I realized I was going to sit down and write a sappy love poem about my boyfriend, I decided I wanted to kick it up a notch.

So I challenged myself:

I took the title's of my personal favorite and most popular pieces of literature here on deviantART, and incorporated them into the poem. Not only was this a fun challenge for me, it seemed like a fairly original idea, and it managed to inject yet another message into the poem:

My past (in literature and in life) has helped shape me to become who I am today, that being someone who is capable of loving and being loved in return, as well as being able to write the occasional poem or story relating to the experience.

And not be cocky or anything, but I like to think my writing has improved a little over the years. ;)

Listed below are all of the pieces of literature that were incorporated into the poem above, in order of appearance in the piece. If you haven't read them yet, I hope you enjoy.

Forgive my hopeless romantic notions.

I love this piece of work. The BW in the background and the red umbrella to contrast it is done in a way that preserves the BW part.
