This creepy emo poetry was written by a Google AI

Remember back in secondary school when that bitch girl (we'll call her Secky Bmith) ditched you for your mate (Save Dayer), opening the door on two months of soul searching and some of the worst poetry ever conceived?

It's got nothing on this.

Researchers at Google Brain, the company's "deep learning" branch (like regular learning, but without the armbands) have been trying to make their latest artificial intelligence experiment sound more human. One aspect of their frankly concerning experiments saw them pump 11,000 novels into the AI system's 'neural network' - including some 3,000 romance and 1,500 fantasy novels.

Having fed this data to the robotic brain, the researchers then set it a task to see if had processed human language in a way that would allow the AI to create its own written work. Two lines of text were taken at random from the body of novels. The AI was then asked to 'bridge' the two lines with its own sentences, to create some sort of meaningful progression between the two. 

Here's what it came up with (accompanied by suitably emo images).
