W.B. Yeats
The Scholars
"Bald heads forgetful of their sins,
Old, learned, respectable bald heads
Edit and annotate the lines
That young men, tossing on their beds,
Rhymed out in love’s despair
To flatter beauty’s ignorant ear.

They’ll cough in the ink to the world’s end;
Wear out the carpet with their shoes
Earning respect; have no strange friend;
If they have sinned nobody knows.
Lord, what would they say
Should their Catullus walk that way?”
W.B. Yeats, The Wild Swans at Coole

“Like two stars in the depths of the sky
This gravity is just irresistible
We spin around each other, you and I
When I fell for you, I fell into your orbit.”

“Love starts as a feeling,
But to continue is a choice;
And I find myself choosing you
More and more every day.”

Kamand Kojouri
“I do not write about love
as if I have invented it.
I write about love
because thoughts of you
inspire self-forgetfulness.
And because writing about you
gives birth to a star.
These stars sit inside me
where there was once
darkness.”
Kamand Kojouri

“Sometimes it feels like even if
Every inch of my skin was touching yours
I still wouldn’t be close enough to you.”
Justin Wetch, Bending The Universe

Ranjani Ramachandran
“I am a Dancer; rehearsing the steps of our unheard song with utmost perfection.
Never will you tap your feet consciously.

I am a Singer; singing the tune of the song I always wanted you to hear.
Never will the melody bring back our memories to you.

I am an Orator; emphasizing and emoting what I feel for you.
Never will you hear your name throughout.

I am a Writer; penning all the unsaid intentions with sincerity.
Never will you see your name at the top.

Because at the end of it all I am Actor;
Nevertheless you taught me how well to pretend!”
Ranjani Ramachandran

Ranjani Ramachandran
“Happy be Thy world
The world forgetting by the forgotten world;
The failed attempts to remember the need to forget;

Naturally, Eventually, Gradually, Usually, Finally ; Thy Allies will accompany you and end this Abruptly.

For Thy, it may seem simple;

Oh Shameless Crook! Thy have done it before and will do it again and when thy does it -- seems that only the innocence weeps.”
Ranjani Ramachandran

“You are the Moon who cannot see her own beauty. Let me be the Ocean and show you your own beautiful reflection!”

Catarine Hancock
“i cried because i was
full of dead stars and broken debris,
but you still called me
beautiful.”
Catarine Hancock, The Boys I've Loved & The End of the World

“The Hardest Part

Not the loving, but the part
just after—
the remembering
when you gathered
the broken pieces
of what once had been whole
and the part after that—
the forgetting
when you drowned those pieces
one by one into abyss.”
Neena H Brar

“I came up with a new reason
To write your name today
I plagiarized each letter
From a love note you wrote me.
The scent of ink was sacred to me
In that relapsed moment…
For a minute I could pretend
The paper reminded me of your skin;
I could pretend the glimmering ink
Was the moonlit lake
Of our summer night.
But the pretending crumpled with paper
And I threw us into the trash can
For the bridge between us is long burned
And it’s time I accepted that.”
Justin Wetch, Bending The Universe

Kamand Kojouri
“Why is it surprising that I,
your Little Sequin,
can write devastating love poems?
Tell me how you can spot
the violent storms inside a heart?
Can you identify which person
is going through a revolution?
Which is revolting against their thoughts
and overthrowing their mind, only
to make their heart king?
There is a world inside each of us.
By writing,
I hope to share mine with you.
So please,
step inside.”
Kamand Kojouri

Knut Hamsun
“If she only knew that all of his poems had been written to her and no one else, every single one, even the one to Night, even the one to the Spirit of the Swamp. But that was something she should never know.”
Knut Hamsun, Victoria

“Not until I felt your sunshine,
Did I realize that I had been in the shade.
Not until I saw all your colors,
Did I realize that mine had faded.
Not until I heard your dreams,
Did I realize that I was still sleeping.
And not until I experienced my life with you,
Did I realize that I was barely
Breathing.

“you will miss me
when it will rain
and you will look
outside the window
and you will
remember
how I held you
while we both
looked at the raindrops
falling from the sky
and laughed together...”

And your lips touched my lips
The whole Universe paused!

And when your Soul
Collided with my Soul
That's when newer Stars
And Galaxies were formed!”
Avijeet Das

“Wayward has been my heart
Drifter have I been all my life
And then one day
We bump into each other
Souls looking for a harbor in
the vast ocean
Though I see the raging storm
In your eyes
You know and so do I know
That I will stay by your side!”
Avijeet Das

“You are like the first drops of the wet rain
You are like the first rays of the warm sun
I call myself a madman
For I have lost myself within you
Somewhere...”
Avijeet Das

“Love gives the best of highs
But also the worst of hangovers.”
Justin Wetch, Bending The Universe

“They say that love has never been immortal. That it is only the songs, books, and movies which instill this thought in our mind. But tell me then why does my heart yearn to just have a glimpse of you every moment of my life? Why do I keep missing you? Why do I feel restless untill I have spoken to you? Why do I keep thinking about you every night lying there in my bed? Why do I feel incomplete without you in my life?”
Avijeet Das
