Wednesday, June 19Royal Holloway's offical student publication, est. 1986

I let one go to catch another, but that one left too.

I’ve searched for too long

To find someone like you

But when I finally find you

You scamper away

I’ve only just put myself back


from that last


My heart,


in a thousand pieces.

And now,


A thousand and one.

And so the number grows.

When will it get smaller?

Please will someone put me back together?
