Week 24 - Broken Hearts and Lovers Quarrels

Between the idea
And the reality
Between the motion
And the act
Falls the Shadow
(T.S. Eliot, The Hollow Men)

I don't recall before this year ever hearing the words "Anti-Valentine". But maybe it's the state of the world today or my state of mind that makes me think of lost loves and broken hearts. For someone who is Happily Single in SL and Happily Married in RL, still I know that fairytales don't often come true. We have to hang on to what's good in our lives because often we can't control the bad.

When You are Old by W.B. Yeats

When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;
How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim Soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;
And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.
