[what I'm feeling |artistic]
[what I'm hearing |Panic! At the Disco]

Tell me why, sad and sighing, thou dost rove
These pleasant realms? I pray thee, speak me sooth,
What is thy name? He said 'My name is Love.'
Then straight the first did turn himself to me
And cried: 'He lieth, for his name is Shame,
But I am Love, and I was wont to be
Alone in this fair garden, til he came
Unasked by night; I am true Love, I fill
The hearts of boy and girl with mutual flame,
Then sighing, said the other, 'Have thy will,
I am the love that dare not speak its name.'
 
'Two Loves' by Bosie.

Isn't is amazing? The court used it to condemn Oscar of sodomy. It made me very sad. 
(It's in my journal too, because I think it's beautiful :)
