My Heart is Lame


My heart is lame with running after yours so fast
Such a long way,
Shall we walk slowly home, looking at all the things we passed

    This had me in tears.... How beautiful a description of the sheer exhaustion of loving one who does not return the emotion. The first stanza I believe expresses the need to just slow down and wishing she could lead her lover through all the memories she holds so dear.
    The second I think is my favourite, where one glances and all is lost. The unable to touch. Oh the tears. I wish they would go away.
    Something lovelier in loves face death (I swoon at the poignance here) she wonders I think if her lover may beguin to regret Although Charlotte believes this may happen I think she knows she is nohw internally dead. I must save this. Ps this is just my interpretation.

    Love her photo. So charismatic. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
