the poem "Love" by Yes, Kant Can (which he posted a few days ago), explores the nature of love. it reminds me of this video which explores one aspect of love, "the crush," and its often less than happy ending.


in a way this video is a visual sonnet—


"Love is not love 

Which alters when it alteration finds . . ."


but it does alter. i hope the video works for you:




love is eternal

though lovers come and go


love is bliss

bliss is fleeting


love is kindness

from the heart


love is pain

from a broken heart


love is blue

so the song says


love is purposeful

think procreation


love is childish

turns women to girls


men to boys

love is a work in progress


with no end in sight

love is everything one hopes it to be


and less

and more




silly girl

P.S. I meant "animation," not "animal."

I loved the concept and the animal of the video. Like you said, it is a visual image. I also liked the aphoristic quality of the couplets.
