About the poem

This poem is about an aspect of unrequited love. When you can’t have the love that you want and you’re in pain because of that, in one point you try to make peace with the pain. And you work hard to maintain that peace. But when you see that person again, that resolve gets completely distorted.

You came and went
like a tornado
and I’m picking up the pieces
of my resolve.
