I have this theory (I can’t prove it).
My theory is that unrequited love is the stuff,
the ether, the cosmic glue that holds the universe together.
(Now stay with me, because this is where it gets complicated.)
If, suddenly, everyone’s love was returned to them
in the exact amount in which it was given,
worlds would collide
stars would die
the entire universe itself would implode into nothingness!
And we can’t have that now, can we?
