All first love is unrequited ultimately because it’s so huge. It’s such an act of giving and it requires so much back that it can never be given back and in that you wouldn’t necessarily want it given back. It’s, it’s a, it’s just like a, it is like an atom bomb. It’s like it’s all the energy of who you are and who you want to be and what you love and what you hope to be explodes and it is impossible for a single human being to offer that back to you in a mutual way.
It would be like matter meeting antimatter. It’s sort of almost important that what you do is worship and yearn and long.
