May the appetite sicken and so die...

Love is a two way thing.

And yet too many times we are caught in situations when love is the loneliest thing in the world.

 My favorite Shakespeare book is The Twelfth Night and for those of you who haven't read it, the prominent theme is unrequited love. (Kindly go and read it. You will laugh your socks off) Almost all the lovers in the play loved someone they could not have.

It is the play that has this famous quote...

'If music be the food of love , play on
Give me excess of it
That surfeiting the appetite may sicken and so die'

Unlike most Shakespearean plays, it ends happily and everyone finds love at the end of the day. Well almost everyone. Poor Malvolio. I even recited Viola's longest speech in front of the whole school one time.

I have never felt what it means to like someone and not have that person like you back. Everyone I have wanted, I have ended up being with even if it was for a short time.

There is always a first time for everything. 

Here is to all you unrequited lovers out there.... 'may the appetite sicken and so die'
