This book broke my heart. Emotive, cursive, nostalgic, melancholic. Turks have a beautiful word for melancholy, 'huzun',it nearly describes the heavy despair which drowns your breath, like you're breathing in gelatin. It draws you in like 'lolita', a ...more
New Selected Poems by Edwin Morgan
“When you go,
if you go,
And I should want to die,
there's nothing I'd be saved by
more than the time
you fell asleep in my arms
in a trust so gentle
I let the darkening room
drink up the evening, till
rest, or the new rain
lightly roused you awake.
I asked if you heard the rain in your dream
and half dreaming still you only said, I love you.”
Edwin Morgan
The Silver Metal Lover by Tanith Lee
“A rose by any other name
Would get the blame
For being what it is--
The colour of a kiss,
The shadow of a flame.

A rose may earn another name,
So call it love;
So call it love I will,
And love is like the sea,
Which changes constantly,
And yet is still
The same.”
Tanith Lee

To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet.”

Pablo Neruda
“I love you without knowing how, 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 close.”
Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

T.S. Eliot
“This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.”
T.S. Eliot

T.S. Eliot
“Where does one go from a world of insanity? Somewhere on the other side of despair.”
