To a Jilted Lover
by Sylvia Plath

Cold on my narrow cot I lie
and in sorrow look
through my window-square of black:

figured in the midnight sky,
a mosaic of stars
diagrams the falling years,

while from the moon, my lover's eye
chills me to death
with radiance of his frozen faith.

Once I wounded him with so
small a thorn
I never thought his flesh would burn

or that the heat within would grow
until he stood
incandescent as a god;

now there is nowhere I can go
to hide from him:
moon and sun reflect his flame.

In the morning all shall be
the same again:
stars pale before the angry dawn;

the gilded cock will turn for me
the rack of time
until the peak of noon has come

and by that glare, my love will see
how I am still
blazing in my golden hell.

Lying in me
by Anna Akhmatova

Lying in me, as though it were a white
Stone in the depths of a well, is one
Memory that I cannot, will not, fight:
It is happiness, and it is pain.
Anyone looking straight into my eyes
Could not help seeing it, and could not fail
To become thoughtful, more sad and quiet
Than if he were listening to some tragic tale.

I know the gods changed people into things,
Leaving their consciousness alive and free.
To keep alive the wonder of suffering,
You have been metamorphosed into me.

There Is An Utter Mark
by A. Akhmatova

There is an utter mark in the people's nearness,
Which can't be crossed by love and passion,--
But in the striking silence lips become one
And the heart is torn apart by love.

And here friendship is helpless,
And the mountain of high and flaming happiness,
When the soul is free and estranged
From the slow calm of sweet passion.

In striving for it they become insane,
And those attaining it are annihilated by grief...
And now you understand why
My heart doesn't beat under your hand.

The Last Toast
by A. Akhmatova

I drink to the ruined house,
To the evil of my life,
To our shared loneliness
And I drink to you--
To the lie of lips that betrayed me,
To the deadly coldness of the eyes,
To the fact that the world is cruel and depraved,
To the fact that God did not save.

Sorting Laundry


Folding clothes,
I think of folding you
into my life.

Our king-sized sheets
like table cloths
for the banquets of giants,

pillow cases, despite so many
washings seams still
holding our dreams.

Towels patterned orange and green,
flowered pink and lavender,
gaudy, bought on sale,

reserved, we said, for the beach,
refusing, even after years,
to bleach into respectability.

So many shirts and skirts and pants
recycling week after week, head over heels
recapitulating themselves.

All those wrinkles
to be smoothed, or else
ignored, they're in style.

Myriad uncoupled socks
which went paired into the foam
like those creatures in the ark.

And what's shrunk
is tough to discard
even for Goodwill.

In pockets, surprises:
forgotten matches,
lost screws clinking on enamel;

paper clips, whatever they held
between shiny jaws, now
dissolved or clogging the drain;

well-washed dollars, legal tender
for all debts public and private,
intact despite agitation;

and, gleaming in the maelstrom,
one bright dime,
broken necklace of good gold

you brought from Kuwait,
the strangely tailored shirt
left by a former lover...

If you were to leave me,
if I were to fold
only my own clothes,

the convexes and concaves
of my blouses, panties, stockings, bras
turned upon themselves,

a mountain of unsorted wash
could not fill
the empty side of the bed.

-Elisavietta Ritshie (b. 1932)

Found this one while reading. I need a long long long nap.

I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman.

- A. Nin

I think this is one of the most romantic poems ever written. It reads so vulnerably; so full of hope and at once helplessness.
How talented can one have been to put into words such feelings and create such pictures in my mind?!?!?! Ehh Sevak, Sevak. smile.gif

Love is an illusion for which the body tricks the spirit by drugging it with dopamine. -- Me

Marriages are corporate mergers and contractual negotiations. -- Me

Love poetry is purely for the delusional and the surrealists by the delusion and the surrealists. -- Me

So is color! Such nonsense are both! And yet both have been necessary and important enough to withstand evolution throughout the ages. smile.gif We have been programmed to fool ourselves in order to be able to survive. (Bio Psych)

And you would have the MAN of the household be sole owner of all stocks and hold the portfloio in his hands. And the contract would be written under his own terms! That is why most marriages do not last beyond th 8th quarter!

Lol. We should enrol all would be newlyweds in Business Law and Econ courses. That will save them all. huh.gif
While we are at it, can we enroll the girls in Sex Ed and the Boys in Home Ec?

Essentially, this is irrelevant. Love is a choice and nothing more. People grow unto one another, the rest is just tacked on.

A man should be at the helm of the household. If you don't like that go marry a gay guy. That does not mean a man should be the sole arbiter or decision maker, but his word should carry weight. The reason marriages don't last beyond the 8th quarter is because of silly women who think we are all equal and want to be all independent and cute. The contract should be mutual, or else why bother entering into such a transaction? A prenuptial agreement by the parties involved is a must, otherwise you accept the State's prenuptial agreement.

Another reason marriages fail is because the sex is horrible but this is not a valid reason to divorce when children are in the mix.

Wait for Me
By Konstantin Simonov


Wait for me, and I'll come back!
Wait with all you've got!
Wait, when dreary yellow rains
Tell you, you should not.
Wait when snow is falling fast,
Wait when summer's hot,
Wait when yesterdays are past,
Others are forgot.
Wait, when from that far-off place,
Letters don't arrive.
Wait, when those with whom you wait
Doubt if I'm alive.

Wait for me, and I'll come back!
Wait in patience yet
When they tell you off by heart
That you should forget.
Even when my dearest ones
Say that I am lost,
Even when my friends give up,
Sit and count the cost,
Drink a glass of bitter wine
To the fallen friend -
Wait! And do not drink with them!
Wait until the end!

Wait for me and I'll come back,
Dodging every fate!
"What a bit of luck!" they'll say,
Those that would not wait.
They will never understand
How amidst the strife,
By your waiting for me, dear,
You had saved my life.
Only you and I will know
How you got me through.
Simply - you knew how to wait -
No one else but you.

Somewhere there's someone who dreams of your smile,
and finds in your presence that life is worth while.
So when you are lonely, remember it's true
Somebody somewhere is thinking of you.

Marriage is not a ritual or an end.
It is a long, intricate,
intimate dance together
and nothing matters more
than your own sense of balance
and your choice of partner.
