Summary of 'The Heart Wants What it Wants' by Selena Gomez
The Heart Wants What it Wants was written by Selena Gomez and it is about her expressing a break up and how she feels about it. She expresses how she still loves and has feelings for him. She's not sure whats going to happen in the end which leaves her so unsure of everything with all these mixed feelings and it's hurting her because one minute he takes her breath away and the next he's no where to be found.

Both On Monsieur's Departure and The heart wants what it wants have a theme of unrequited love. For some reason they both love someone who they can't have. Both poems talk about how they feel and how they are dealing with it. They both involve feeling pain of not being able to have the one person that they want.

You got me sipping on
something

But I'm not alive until you
call
And I'll bet the odds against it
all

Summary of On Monsieur's Departure by Queen Elizabeth 1
On Monsieur's Departure is about Elizabeth and a lovers inability to be together for some unknown reason. She tries to seem as cold as ice while on the inside she is not as hard as she appears to be. She wants nothing more but to either die and forget what love ever meant or be allowed to fall in love with someone else because she knows she can never have him.
