  • 1. Love in Literature, Love in You (Part 1)
    By: Sarah T. Ip
    You called out to me, but I just kept walking.
    And in defeat, the corners turned down low
    I shuffled past you in the dark.
    Behind the grimy alley of your bemused heart.
    Well well, I've caught you empty-handed
    Holes in your pockets crisply stung ablaze
    With nobody to pinpoint, you alone deserve the pricking
    Because you left...because you left me.
    Three hours of this, three hours of vomiting bliss
    Oh you sneer with a cackle of hoarse tobacco-stained lip
    But you cannot remain this way, whole behind glass
    You’ve forgotten you need the angelic dew
    Of a rosy glow long past
    You wish you could account for the pennies trickling
    Into puddles of sentimental slush
    Shifting with moaning unease
    As I shadow you across
    Nothing, nothingness pervades the hole in your
    Watered-down version of a patched-up something
    That was, but cannot be.

    Love in Literature, Love in You (Part 2)
    Sonnet 116
    By: William Shakespeare
    Let me not to the marriage of true minds
    Admit impediments. Love is not love
    Which alters when it alteration finds,
    Or bends with the remover to remove:
    O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
    That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
    It is the star to every wandering bark,
    Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
    Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
    Within his bending sickle's compass come:
    Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
    But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
    If this be error and upon me proved,
    I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

    Hamlet Soliloquy
    “To Be or Not To Be”
    To be, or not to be: that is the question:
    Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
    The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
    Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
    And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
    No more; and by a sleep to say we end
    The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
    That flesh is heir to, 'tis a consummation
    Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;
    To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub;
    For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
    When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
    Must give us pause: there's the respect
    That makes calamity of so long life;
    For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
    The oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely,
    The pangs of despised love, the law's delay,
    The insolence of office and the spurns
    That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
    When he himself might his quietus make
    With a bare bodkin? who would fardels bear,
    To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
    But that the dread of something after death,
    The undiscover'd country from whose bourn
    No traveller returns, puzzles the will
    And makes us rather bear those ills we have
    Than fly to others that we know not of?
    Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
    And thus the native hue of resolution
    Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,
    And enterprises of great pith and moment
    With this regard their currents turn awry,
    And lose the name of action.
