One way of dealing with unrequited love is to write poems. If you write poems this can help you to get a better understanding of your own emotions – and many times, you might not feel as if you need a clearer understanding of the emotions you experience when you suffer from unrequited love.
Because the emotions are so intense already.
But precisely that is one of the reasons why putting them into words can help: because it requires you to look a bit closer. You see, the intensity makes them almost blinding – it’s like staring at the sun. It’s so bright, it’s overwhelming, and you can’t really see what it is that you are dealing with.
Writing unrequited love poems helps you in a way that sunglasses help you – you process your emotions on a different way, you’re able to channel all those emotional energies into words, create something new out of it.
Nobody is saying that writing poetry alone is a way to overcome unrequited love – but it is one additional method that you can use to better cope with unrequited love and find your way back to happiness.
