"Mit der Dummheit kämpfen die Götter selbst vergebens"  

Want (the state of not having her)

Who cares how pretty your girlfriend is?
Ever fallen in love with someone you shouldn't have fallen in love with?
Falling in love with your best friend?
Hey, would you mind if I was infatuated with you for a week?

If we were machines, we'd have the gift of being eternal and I want you to understand
I'm falling in love with you -
Do you love me or are you in love?
I'm not in love.
I'm just saying...
I love you, just not enough.
If I loved you-
if you have to ask you wouldn't understand
what "I love you" doesn't mean

Just before I was gonna say I love you,
I thought you loved me.

This is a Node Poem.
Valrus? Likey?

Otherwise, it's just a poem. Don't start reading into it.

Re: This is a Node Poem.
::curious look::
Doc dear, which ones of these are yours? I perplexed.
Also? I think I may want to get in on this noding thing too. Sounds nifty.

None of them are mine -
see, that's the beauty part ;)

And getting in on the noding part? Head on over to E2 and look at the E2 University and E2 FAQ - I have a couple of meta-E2 nodes in my userinfo. I am by no means an expert - in fact, I was reprimanded a couple times by the editors today for some trifling small things that are, nonetheless, important.

It's also a giant time-suck - so keep that in mind ;)

decidedly clever. I like it, both the content and the concept.

I sometimes do this sort of thing with the top 10 country music singles in the Sunday paper.

That's why I'm asking you -
because you're not a poet, and I'm trying to gauge how well it would go over. Regardless, it's gone on the radar now- most recent w/u should have the link.

But the downvoting has already begun . . . :(

Yeah - Klaproth ate it
Now it will sit in my homenode until I decide it's crap - which will probably take quite a while.

I got a /msg from a god telling me to read the FAQ about linking things. I know he's a god and all, but jebus fuck!

I'm confused... you have one line that isn't linked to E2, but instead is linked to my LJ when looking at this post from my friends view, and linked to the LJ mainpage when viewing the comments... clever coding?
Hoc Est Qui Sumusdiscoflamingo on March 10th, 2003 02:42 pm (UTC)
Nah - one of the links doesn't exist anymore, because Klaproth ate it (I submitted the poem as an E2 entry, and it got deleted)
