So you know everything. You leap
into the boat and begin rowing. But listen to me.
Without fanfare, without embarrassment, without
any doubt, I talk directly to your soul. Listen to me.
Lift the oars from the water, let your arms rest, and
your heart, and heart’s little...
or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes...
not lost in you,
Not lost, although I long to be
Lost as a candle lit at noon,
Lost as a snowflake in the sea.
You love me, and I find you still
A spirit beautiful and bright,
Yet I am I, who long to be
Lost as a light is lost in light.
Oh plunge me deep in love—put out
night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed
Beyond this place of wrath and...
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 alone
I am in a room so small and so dark
Fear takes over me, i scream but no one hears me
This room so small and tiny...

And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth

Because it was grassy and wanted...

Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright

Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

I though of this one. This is one of my favorites which means a lot to me. Shelley wrote beautifully with a heart which must have been full of passion. Enjoy. ~J

The fountains mingle with the river,
And the rivers with the ocean...
after many years
of hard work and a long voyage
you stand in the centre of your room,
house, half acre, square mile, island, country
knowing at last how you got there,
and say I own this,
is the same moment when the trees unloose
there soft arms from around you,
the birds take...
As if, through a mist, a first loom;
You are a fine line that holds beauty
So fragile it seems, yet so pretty.
You are the wind that grace my meadows
Of thoughts and lights up my weary shadows;
You are the sun after my night
That lights up everything in sight.
a paper before me
id write it all down
but the words don't agree
thoughts don't breathe
and the skin's dark no more
the hearts always open
but you don't explore
you never ask anything
you don't do the talking
its not that im tired dear
but i don't feel like walking...

In human closeness there is a secret edge,
Nor love nor passion can pass it above,
Let lips with lips be joined in silent rage,
And hearts be burst asunder with the love.
And friendship, too, is powerless plot,
And so years of bliss with noble tends,
When your heart is free...

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,
All the empty boxes left on your to do list
Time is wasted
When you’re standing on a rock at the edge of a waterhole
And decide to not jump...
Will not be spoken.
The ways of your love for me
Will not be known.
The taste of your lips on mine
Will remain a mystery.
The warmth of you skin against me
Will only be my imagination.

Life was so unfair
As if no one care
I cherish the good times
The bad times
The searching times
The times of bitterness
The times of sadness
When you seek and tried to find
The dream you left behind
Your agony is great
Yet we had something hard to create
I don’t know...

I will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth.
I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible. And when I leave you will finally understand...
I feel i'm fading
and my life, its trading
with the devil its slowly masquerading
evading, every inch of peace i found
and now i cry in a faint sound,
bob around and lay back
under the stars shining, in the black
dark firmament landing me on the track...
The wild winds coldly blow;
But a tryant spell has bound me,
And I cannot, cannot go.
The giant trees are bending
Their bare boughs weighed with snow;
The storm is fast descending,
And yet I cannot go.
Clouds beyond clouds abouve me,
Wastes beyond wastes below;
i like my body when it is with your
body. It is so quite a new thing.
Muscles better and nerves more.
i like your body. i like what it does,
i like its hows. i like to feel the spine
of your body and its bones, and the trembling
-firm-smooth ness and which i will

have perceiv’d that to be with those I like is enough,
To stop in company with the rest at evening is enough,
To be surrounded by beautiful, curious, breathing, laughing flesh is enough,
To pass among them or touch any one, or rest my arm ever so lightly round his or her neck...
Silent and starving, I prowl through the streets.
Bread does not nourish me, dawn disrupts me, all day.
I hunt for the liquid measure of your steps.
I hunger for your sleek laugh,
your hands, the color of a savage harvest,
hunger for the pale stones of your...
He creates powerfully romantic, sensual images that speak to being human, and our desire for romantic love. Beautiful!
Place your hands upon me
like a big tent preacher
and with a whisper

Put your lips upon my forehead
and glance your eyes
to the sky...

Not in an orphanage. He hides
In no humanitarian disguise,

But in some fantastical ordinary incog:
Behind a well-wrapped convent girl’s eyes,

Among the women of the coffee-shop...
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 song was written as a love poem/song in 1957 by a British singer named Ewan MacColl for his lover, Peggy Seeger. http://en.wikipedia.org...

Something that would make you aware
That I'm thinking of you
And of how much I care.
So I'm sending this message
From my heart to you
With wishes for the best today
In all that you do.

you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;
How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man...
It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.
It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of...
as at a play; I had the wisdom love brings forth; I had my share of mother-wit,
And yet for all that I could say, And though I had her praise for it, A cloud blown from the cut-throat north suddenly hid Love's moon away.
Believing every word I said, I praised her body and her...
waiting to be discovered,
so that you can discover my interior,
while undressing my feelings,
in front of you.
Open my core, my heart,
my soul, open them so,
that you may see me,
and discover what lies in me.
So that you may see,
that I am not only made of flesh and bones,
somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond
any experience,your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which i cannot touch because they are too near
your slightest look easily will unclose me
though i have closed...
