Heartbroken in two flavors


Breaking his heart... by =andaria

The young man or woman writing today has forgotten the problems of the human heart in conflict with itself which alone can make good writing because only that is worth writing about, Worth the agony and the sweat.

Who knows how to make love stay?

1. Tell love you are going to Junior’s Deli on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn to pick up a cheesecake, and if love stays, it can have half. It will stay.

2. Tell love you want a memento of it and obtain a lock of its hair. Burn the hair in a dime-store incense burner with yin/yang symbols on three sides. Face southwest. Talk fast over the burning hair in a convincingly exotic language. Remove the ashes of the burnt hair and use them to paint a mustache on your face. Find love. Tell it you are someone new. It will stay.

3. Wake love up in the middle of the night. Tell it the world is on fire. Dash to the bedroom window and pee out of it. Casually return to bed and assure love that everything is going to be all right. Fall asleep. Love will be there in the morning.

My beautiful girlfriend and I are so at ease with our relationship that we feel perfectly happy to hold hands and kiss in public. When we see a person who looks a little lonely, we'll walk past them with our arms around each other, gazing contentedly into each other's eyes. If they don't notice us at first, we'll go back and stand directly in front of them, kissing passionately, sighing, and touching each other's bodies in the way only lovers can. It's so important for these people to see just how perfect life can be once you've found that special someone.

[ Your Face ]


A man's face is his autobiography. A woman's face is her work of fiction.

My girlfriend is so pretty that I can't get over it. Every week I celebrate the alignment of her features by parading a giant photograph of her lovely face around the town center. I've written the words "pretty face" on the picture's border, and drawn an arrow to direct people's attention toward it. It's not bragging, because it's her that's the pretty one, not me. I'm going to parade every week for as long as she lets me be her boyfriend, and probably even longer. Nothing's going to put me off, not even the shouts of "Had her" or "Been there."
