The Cabin - Dedicated to Chelsea
A weekend escape,
To a cabin far away,
To spend it together,
And live life in a day,
We talked and we chatted,
We hugged and we kissed...
“History says, Don't hope/On this side of the grave/But then, once in a lifetime/The longest-for tidal wave of justice can rise up/And hope and history rhyme./So hope for a great...
I saw her coming through the flowery grass,
Round her swift ankles butterfly and bee
Blent loud and silent wings ; I saw her pass
Where foam-bows shivered on the sunny...
After The Dusk__a Translation - Tu ne dekha ha kabhi aik nazar shaam kay baad?

I don't care what others say
If you go
I may cry
I don't want to say good-bye
"Don’t Forget To Live" by Madisen Kuhn
Time isn’t wasted at the end of the day
When you’re in bed thinking about all the things
You could’ve done,
You could’ve said...
you know what I like
you know what I want
I can get it right here, right now
I can make your sadness disappear
Right here, that's how
It Was Rather Beautiful: -
Ebony- Tess Gallagher
I need these dark waves pulsing in my sleep.
How else make up for the pungency
of that carnation’s breath freshened over us,
night on night? Just to lie...
Darkness - Darkness around me
Darkness surrounds me
Darkness don't get near me
Darkness I fear thee
Darkness you hurt
Darkness you lurk
Darkness you lurk at night
If you love something, set it free. If it returns you have not lost it. If it disappears and never comes back, then it was never yours to begin with. And if it just sits there...
You're My Black Hole, I'm In Trouble - Your peach is within my reach
You galactic disaster
I will eat and eat
Feed my famine with your laughter
Unrequited Love -
This poem very much captures the author's feelings of unrequited love; of being loved just a very little by someone, who always has bigger and better fish to...
in spite of everything
by E. E. Cummings
in spite of everything
which breathes and moves,since Doom
(with white longest hands
neatening each crease)
will smooth entirely our minds...
If You Forget Me
I want you to know
You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire...
The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face - Yes, I know this was a song, but the song lyrics read like a beautiful poem. So I decided to add it to this ep group. I found out that this...

To cherish each day
Follow your dreams

That is inside you
When you feel fear
Love will see you...
Rapture - There is a place for us
that no one else can enter.
It is a place that holds no secrets,
only beauty, peace, understanding.
A place that we come to,
thinking we are one...
Have you ever lived a poem? I have. First the poem, then the story.
We were very tired, we were very merry—
We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry.
It was bare and...
I Feel So Alone - Loneliness is what i feel
I feel so alone
I feel so isolated
The emptyness in my heart
Can not be feeled by any soul
I am surounded by people but yet i feel so...
Unending Love - I seemed to have loved you numberless times, in numberless forms...
In life afer life, age after age, forvever.
My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace...
Here is an example of a Shakespearean Sonnet I wrote for English class.
Don’t ever try to be something you’re not
You’ll only look...

Más allá del amor (Octavio Paz)
Todo nos amenaza:
el tiempo, que en vivientes fragmentos divide
al que fui
del que seré,
como el machete a la culebra;

What Is Love? - Is love found in holding hands?
In quiet whispers?
In looks shared across a crowded room?
Is love shared in notes?
Is love felt with a...
BROKEN Broken when I met you, but you say I changed the hand.
Now you feel back on top, so maybe I'm no longer your plan.
I'm sick of being played with, sick of being blamed...

Time to read some of Margaret Atwood's works. :)
My grandmother wrote this poem. Her marriage was so much like mine, but she stuck it out. I dug it out today to give myself hope.
There you are.
Striding across the winter...
I am He that Aches with Love.
by Walt Whitman
I AM he that aches with amorous love;
Does the earth gravitate? Does not all matter, aching, attract all matter?
So the Body of me...
The More Loving One - WH Auden
The More Loving One
Looking up at the stars, I know quite well
That, for all they care, I can go to hell,
But on earth indifference is the least
'Have you ever kept looking for something
Never knowing what it was, but knowing it was lost forever?'
Been in a real poetic mood lately. But I havent quite the 'zing' back...
When two souls fall in love, there is nothing else but the
yearning to be close to the other. The presence that is felt
through a hand held, a voice heard, or a smile seen...
We come to pass with a lesson to put in. (and perhaps old teachings to put aside.)
Like a seed we plant. We have to make the decision to throw its hard covered shell down...
My take on love
Fiction in real.
Deeper you feel..
More it is superficial.
Yet money can get.
Lost in thought if you concentrate..
It's just hormones that...

Falling. By Caroli9 - There she stood upon a high,
World blowing through her mind,
" Let go & Fall " the wind does cry,
with arms outstretched her falls a glide...
I am the pain of the heart
the restless mind that people see
I am the body of past the soul of tomorrow
I am the ghost of earth. I am me
There is so much to say to you, for I'm just an observer just like you. When I look at you, an eternal thought kicks in, automatically without my permission, in my head, based on a...
Pity the hand that reaches and does not take. The pain left behind the many stories untold wallow in despair. Unfathomed, but remarkably alive; a rare and beautiful...
“He who becomes the slave of habit,
who follows the same routes every day,
who never changes pace,
who does not risk and change the color of his clothes,
who does not speak and...
The fear that binds
Time to unwind
The shadows of doubt
Let the Sunshine out
Holding back for protection from rejection
Just let it go
Love was meant to flow
Lines Written in Early Spring
BY WILLIAM WORDSWORTH
I heard a thousand blended notes,
While in a grove I sate reclined,
In that sweet mood when pleasant thoughts
All I am,
Is buried deep
Touch my soul with your hands; Touch my body with your heart. Don't ever hesitate to touch my mind with your wisdom; for all my strength lies in your hands reaching for our...
If I Could Tell You - WH Auden
Time will say nothing but I told you so
Time only knows the price we have to pay;
If I could tell you I would let you know.
If we should weep...
I'm Protected -
In the corner of your lips
like a smile i am protected
in the sorrows of your eyes
like a tear
in the silence of your night
like the tick-tok i am protected
Dear heart, why will you use me so?
Dear eyes that gently me upbraid,
Still are you beautiful -- - but O,
How is your beauty raimented!
Through the clear mirror of your eyes...
