“I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.”
― Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

Poetry is a way to pour out your emotions, thoughts, delusions, anything at all polite society would otherwise deem unacceptable. It is often considered the boundaries between the innocence of youth and the cruelties of the adult world. Its words are laced in rusted allusions, metaphors, alliterations, anything at all that the writer has fallen in love with.
