it was amazing

Now Now.
This is an enthralling piece.
I have never felt such a feeling. Never ever. He placed his thoughts in the bossoms of my chest, and I wore all his Literary apparels. He was simply amazing.
Life he explained, and his volumes were so interesting and sumptuous.
At first I couldn't fathom his meanings, but with the help of spark notes I had an exaltation.
It was indeed a wonderful tale to tell.
Life is a beautiful dream. It wounds us so beautifully that we keep getting hurt and hurt.
That's what I like.
I love to tell a tale; my personal tale. I want to see everyone happy. I want to know they are governing their lives just the ways they have wanted. I want to see everyone shine, and more so I want the sky to be so decorated with stars that we will want to measure up.
This is the ideal identity. I want happiness.
Eternal enlightenment.

Beautiful book once more, and it wasn't such an easy, breezing book. It took time. The texts were rich, and oh the words I learnt. :D

Here is one of the poems;

ONE’S-SELF I sing—a simple, separate Person;
Yet utter the word Democratic, the word En-masse.

Of Physiology from top to toe I sing;
Not physiognomy alone, nor brain alone, is worthy for the muse—I say the Form complete is worthier far;
The Female equally with the male I sing.

Of Life immense in passion, pulse, and power,
Cheerful—for freest action form’d, under the laws divine,
The Modern Man I sing.

Re-read it and you'll understand how it goes. Thank you for reading and being part of this my reading experience.

Yours truly and ever blossoming,
Taymara Jagmohan.
