In the
light of day
it is all
just a love contest
and I never
lose.

Now you have
another
good reason
to spend more time
with
me.

They've asked me
to remember
but they want me
to remember
their memories
and I keep on
remembering
mine

From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were — I have not seen
As others saw — I could not bring
My passions from a common spring —
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow — I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone —
And all I lov'd — I lov'd alone —
Then — in my childhood — in the dawn
Of a most stormy life — was drawn
From ev'ry depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still —
From the torrent, or the fountain —
From the red cliff of the mountain —
From the sun that 'round me roll'd
In its autumn tint of gold —
From the lightning in the sky
As it pass'd me flying by —
From the thunder, and the storm —
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view —

Do you know who it is written by?
This poem, feels like you to me...

How do you arrive at that conclussion....

Oh and yes the poem is called "From Childhood's Hour" and it's written by Edgar Allan Poe.....but I have a suspicion you already knew that ?

BTW do you have a more salutary first name, as might be conducive to some beneficial purpose ?

Touche, dear Distillation Elixir I won't ask you again !

.....good for "Bill"....

'Tis but thy name that is my enemy;--
Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
What's Montague? It is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!

What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;

So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title:--Romeo, doff thy name;
And for that name, which is no part of thee,
Take all myself.

Why must judgement dominate us today,
Accusations fly like fishing rod lines,
In the sea of words that these people say,
Corrupting the pleasant thoughts of young minds.

Prejudiced beliefs linger like rainclouds,
Raining on opinions of you and I,
Cries of hate ring through my ears from these crowds,
Almost like thunder's constructed war cry.

Does the phrase,''love thy neighbour'' mean nothing,
To those faces that roam across this earth,
It could be a compromise or something,
For, If we learned love, it would bring rebirth.

Jealousy will dominate in our heart,
Until we learn to love, or at least start.

Until we learn to love, or at least start.
A mermaid found a swimming lad,
Picked him for her own,
Pressed her body to his body,
Laughed; and plunging down
Forgot in cruel happiness
That even lovers drown.

when it comes to love
I often reflect on Rumi’s love poem:

“The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere,
they're in each other all along.”

and, then, there is Tennyson’s oft-quoted line:

“Tis better to have loved and lost
than never to have loved at all.”

which reminds me of a woman of relatively high society
I recently met in LA
as we sat on her luxurious living room sofa sipping tea –
with downcast eyes – she said to me:

“I’ve never really loved anyone, you know, with
the kind of love you read about and see in movies.
I don’t know why, but true love seems to elude me.
But yet, I still seek love - and I yearn to be loved.”

her voice, lips and eyes held hints of sadness
an inner turmoil perhaps bordering on madness

Her words gave me pause
pause to meditate about loving and being in love
pause to consider the secrets of love

when in high school and afraid to dance
I remember hearing Frank Sinatra sing:
“Love is a Many Splendored Thing”
these lyrics stirred my heart during a new romance
while sitting in my car looking into Judy’s light blue eyes
I turned up the radio and sang along with Frank:

“Love is a many splendored thing
It’s the April rose that only grows
In the early Spring
Love is nature’s way of giving
A reason to be living
The golden crown that makes a man a king

“Once on a high and windy hill
In the morning mist two lovers kissed
and the world stood still
Then your fingers touched my silent heart
and taught it how to sing
Yes, true love’s a many splendored thing”

what is love – is it fulfilling one’s defined passion during the journey –
is it a fleeting fantasy – a mirage that evaporates upon
reaching its destination – a superb source of Madison Avenue revenue –
sublimation of primal energies into lustful synergies

is love a ruse of the Muse to abuse

like loving a particular turn of phrase – an unforgettable melody – a dream –
a cliché such as “love at first sight”– or,“love of awakening to embrace
the wonder of living another day”

I remember a time, when I was in pain - and I became objectively curious –
for pain, I philosophized, may only be felt while we are alive – therefore,
pain serves as an affirmation of our living manifestation

Imagine – imagine being so deeply in love that it is painful

through the pain - I saw and felt a profound beauty surrounding me
beauty imbued with love flowing through every facet of this bewildering creation

so now – when asked about love
I feel I have gathered some wisdom
for love is “a many splendored thing”
limited only by our imagination

I felt a haunting loneliness sometimes, and felt it in others—young clerks in the dusk, wasting the most poignant moments of night and life.”

From "The Great Gatsby", by F. Scott Fitzgerald

“He awoke each morning with the desire to do right, to be a good and meaningful person, to be, as simple as it sounded and as impossible as it actually was, happy.

And during the course of each day his heart would descend from his chest into his stomach. By early afternoon he was overcome by the feeling that nothing was right, or nothing was right for him, and by the desire to be alone.

By evening he was fulfilled: alone in the magnitude of his grief, alone in his aimless guilt, alone even in his loneliness. I am not sad, he would repeat to himself over and over, I am not sad.

As if he might one day convince himself. Or fool himself. Or convince others—the only thing worse than being sad is for others to know that you are sad. I am not sad. I am not sad. Because his life had unlimited potential for happiness, insofar as it was an empty white room.

He would fall asleep with his heart at the foot of his bed, like some domesticated animal that was no part of him at all. And each morning he would wake with it again in the cupboard of his rib cage, having become a little heavier, a little weaker, but still pumping.

And by the midafternoon he was again overcome with the desire to be somewhere else, someone else, someone else somewhere else. I am not sad......I am never a-l-o-n-e”
