Angelina Conte

Emotions are relative.

However  ghastly something may seem to the ignorant

It will turn to a thing of splendor

When seen from the eyes of the infatuated


It’s quite baffling why anybody would choose this

Over everything they could ever want

An enriched shell of a person they detest

Over an idyllic imagining of a faraway life


But feelings change and motivations dwindle

And one day he wakes up to find

That the light streaming through his window

Is just a little bit brighter than it was before
