The fountains mingle with the river,
And the rivers with the ocean,
The winds of heaven mix forever
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single;
All things by law divine
In one another's being mingle;--
Why not I with thine?

See the mountains kiss high heaven
And the waves clasp one another
No sister flower would be forgiven
If it disdained its brother;
And sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea;

What are all these kissings worth
If thou kiss not me?

-Love's Philosophy by Percy Shelley (1792-1822)-

Or as the Mamas and the Papas put it:

Unrequited love's a bore, yeah
And I've got it pretty bad
But for someone you adore
It's a pleasure to be sad

And Evie Tamala sang it even worse (with me pretending to play guitar in the klip):

Kemanapun ada bayanganmu
Dimana pun ada bayangammu
Disemua waktuku ada bayanganmu

Ku menangis, menangisku karena rindu
Ku bersedih, bersedihku karena rindu
Ku berduka, dukaku karena rindu
Ku merana, meranaku karena rindu

Mau tidur teringat padamu
Mau makan teringat padamu
Mau apapun teringat padamu

But the Rutles best summed up the idiocy of infatuation/lust:

Bible punching heavyweight
evangelistic boxing kangaroo
Orangutang and anaconda
Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse
even Pluto too

Hey diddle diddle
The cat and the fiddle
Piggy in the middle

(Stig is dead, honestly)

One man's civilization
is another man's jungle, yeah
They say revolution's in the air
I'm dancing in my underwear
'cause I don't care

Hey diddle diddle
The Cat's in the fiddle
Piggy in the middle

Civilizing jungle bunnies
guinea pigs including me and you
Talk about a knock-kneed frog
Second cousin to a nun living in the zoo

Walky talky man says hello, hello, hello
with his ballerina boots
you can tell he's always on his toes
Hanging on a Christmas tree
Screaming like a bogey man
getting up my nose
