On Fanny Godwin - Poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Her voice did quiver as we parted,
Yet knew I not that heart was broken
From which it came, and I departed
Heeding not the words then spoken.
Misery--O Misery,
This world is all too wide for thee.

    I am appalled and saddened at the low user rating this poem has.
    It is so open and honest and raw.
    So simple, so heartbreaking.
