With great power comes great responsibility.

This is a poem I read in my humanities textbook in high school. I loved it so much I memorized it. It is believed to have been written by a 14 year old Sumerian girl.

Oh, Flower of Henna! My heart stands still in thy presence
I have brightened my eyes for thee with kohl
When I behold thee, I fly to thee, O my Beloved!
O, Lord of my Heart, sweet is the hour
An hour spent with thee is worth an hour of eternity!
Oh, Flower of Marjoram! Fair I would be to thee
As the garden in which I have planted flowers and sweet-smelling shrubs
The garden watered by pleasant runlets and refreshed by the North Breeze
Here let us walk, O my Beloved! Hand in hand – our hearts filled with joy
For better than food, better than drink, it is to behold thee
To behold thee, and to behold thee again!

since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;
wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are a better fate
than wisdom
lady i swear by all flowers. Don’t cry
—the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids’ flutter which says

we are for each other: then
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life’s not a paragraph

And death i think is no parenthesis

(and)

You can take all the tea in china
Put it in a big brown bag for me
Sail right around the seven oceans
Drop it straight into the deep blue sea
Shes as sweet as tupelo honey
Shes an angel of the first degree
Shes as sweet as tupelo honey
Just like honey from the bee

Ad rock down with the ione
Listen to the shit because both of them is boney
Got to do it like this, like Chachi and Joanie
Because she’s the cheese and I’m the macaroni

Where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

I was introduced to this poem, by e.e. cummings from the movie In Her Shoes. (I haven’t attempted to reproduce the poem here, because it has peculiar spacing – which I still cannot quite comprehend the meaning for, but which obviously has some meaning – else why is it spaced that way whenever it is formatted with care?)

It’s a beautiful poem, anyway.

thanks @CWOTUS. e.e. cummings touches me and says what I wish I had said on my own.

“_I don’t love her because she is beautiful. She’s beautiful because I love her._”

That is probably one of the most egotistical things I have read all month.

“Is there a limit to how much you can love somebody? No matter how much I hurt him or get hurt by him, I find myself far from hating him, actually hoping that those wounds will scar, like burns…because then you can never forget me.”-Kamijou Hiroki (Junjo Romantica: Pure Romance)
Haha,sorry, I had to. It’s my favorite, no matter where the quote came from.. heh.

Not exactly mushy, I’m not the mushy sort.

“I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.”

“The best thing a father can do for his children is… love their mother.”
– G.K. Chesterton

He’d have to rewrite that these days as “love their mothers”. But hey, it’s the thought that counts.
