poems about being sick and being in love.
finding out you've got a serious illness like multiple sclerosis is a bit like falling in love. you are never quite the same again.
when you get your heartbroken, it's like getting the news that you're ill. It's a process of grief and you think your life is over and that you will never move on, but you do. alternatively, when you become ill and when you fall in love, you are just simply fucked.
