When Your Heart is Broken

Somerset Maugham best describes unrequited love in “Of Human Bondage” as the “ceaseless aching of the soul”.

Here are two men at 5:30 am, hearts breaking and filled with tears, on the grave in front of my house, softly singing songs of lament over love gone wrong while drowning their sorrows in comradeship and beer. They are probably going to be fined for a most human condition and elixir.
