it was amazing
bookshelves: special-place-in-my-heart

I’ve had some dark days here and there in my life, more there than here anymore and some admittedly of my own making. Days where I allowed such hopelessness and grief to deaden my interest in everything around me. No book or tv program or even the most gorgeous day outside could hold my thoughts for more than a moment. Strangely what did hold my interest would be these sonnets. I’d read them aloud to myself. I’d highlight my favorite lines. I’d announce to the nobody that was listening, “Time does not bring relief! You all have lied who told me it would ease me of my pain!” and it wasn’t time that brought relief so much as a poet who had been there.

Even though these days I don’t dwell on my losses, I still keep the comforting Sonnets of Edna St. Vincent Millay an arms-reach from my bed.
