#!/usr/bin/perl my $eyes = "closed"; my $heart = "aching"; my $beloved = "gone"; no warnings; my $love = (); open MY,"mind"; foreach ($love) { open MY,$eyes; tell my $mind or open my $eyes; } do not $fear and do not die; $i; die "because i love you\n"; do { $i; sleep($_) } while ( $awake ); warn "$me" if ($i == $wrong); bind my $love, $dear and do not exit; for (my $world = "dark") {}; for (my $eyes = "blind") {};

This one just sprang out of my "vi" - it should compile without warnings or errors.


output:

"because i love you"


I guess i wrote it to fight the sadness in me after my girl left me about 6 months ago. :(

    I think it's beautiful. Really nice work. I hope you feel better now.

    Fancy a yourname@perl.me.uk? Just ask!!!
      A litte.

      At least I'm glad someone out there likes it. :)
      This gives me some kind of hope after almost everything in my life started going down the drain.

      Thanks a lot, fellow monk!

        Remember, you can always disappear in your Perl coding.

        At least it takes your mind off things.

        Chin up ;-)

    Passionately and wonderfully written. The sadness is vivid.
