I am almost loved out! I've finished the two poems I was working on but I will go back to them again. And I wrote a new poem this morning. I think I'll take a break now and hopefully come back to poetry later or in the morning.
omnia dicta fortiora si dicta Latina - everything sounds more impressive when said in Latin
Catullus 85; the entire poem reads, "odi et amo quare id faciam fortasse requiris / nescio sed fieri sentio et excrucior" (I hate and I love. Why do I do this, you perhaps ask. / I do not know, but I feel it happening and am tormented)
omnia vincit amor - love conquers all
Ovid, Amores I, 9
Militat omnis amans, et habet sua castra Cupido:
Attice, crede mihi, militat omnis amans.
Every lover wages a war, Cupid has his own campaign
Believe me, Atticus, every lover wages a war.
