Theme: Love brings out the worst and the best in people.
"I look and stare so deep in your eyes...when you leave I'm begging you not to go"
"Crazy in Love" expresses Demetrius and Helena's love before he leaves her for Hermia. He "showered [her] with promises and swore he's be [hers] forever." (7) They had a marvelous love life. Judging from Helena's clingy behavior after the breakup, she was most likely clingy and needy during the relationship as well. She also was "crazy in love" with Demetrius, or she would not have followed him for so long afterwards, begging him to love her. This love brings out Helena's insecure and loving parts. She was both demonstrating neediness in a relationship, which is one of her uglier personalities, and love in a relationship, a nice personality.
