We outgrow love, like other things by Emily Dickinson
"We outgrow love, like other things" is a poem written by Emily Dickinson. Dickinson gives a bleak outlook on love in this poem. She speaks of how we all outgrow love, put it away in a drawer, and then finally display it in antique shows. One can only imagine how she wrote this after finally getting over someone she loved.

We outgrow love, like other things We outgrow love, like other things And put it in the Drawer -- Till it an Antique fashion shows -- Like Costumes Grandsires wore.
