My Heart is Lame


My heart is lame with running after yours so fast
Such a long way,
Shall we walk slowly home, looking at all the things we passed

    This had me in tears.... How beautiful a description of the sheer exhaustion of loving one who does not return the emotion. The first stanza I believe expresses the need to just slow down and wishing she could lead her lover through all the memories she holds so dear.
    The second I think is my favourite, where one glances and all is lost. The unable to touch. Oh the tears. I wish they would go away.
    Something lovelier in loves face death (I swoon at the poignance here) she wonders I think if her lover may beguin to regret Although Charlotte believes this may happen I think she knows she is nohw internally dead. I must save this. Ps this is just my interpretation.

    Love her photo. So charismatic. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
