The term crush has evolved to encompass several different meanings.

Today, there are friend crushes, respect loves, beauty envies and those you want to have intellectual intercourse with, all with different meanings and implications. A crush does not necessarily mean wanting to pursue someone romantically.

In today’s society same-sex crushes are becoming more and more common, and our Poets are crushing hardcore on men and women in the spotlight.
