Were you to cross the world, my dear,
To work or love or fight,
I could be calm and wistful here,

jiU2rv Thank you for another fantastic post. Where else could anybody get that type of information in such an ideal way of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I am on the look for such information.

I thought it was more about a doomed relationship..

If the love is doomed because you are a sea apart, it's dramatic in a romantic way, and you still have the illusion that it's totally meant to be.

If it's simply not working out (because he rejected you) it's harder to accept the failure. And of course, to have him down the lane makes it harder to forget. I hate the thought of my ex-boyfriend still living in this city, the possibility of running into him. GRR! It's bitter to my heart!
