Worn Out

Rating: 3.8

Thy strong arms are around me, love
My head is on thy breast;
Low words of comfort come from thee
Yet my soul has no rest.

For I am but a startled thing
Nor can I ever be
Aught save a bird whose broken wing
Must fly away from thee.

I cannot give to thee the love

Very Touching poem.... Can a death snatch away the eternal soul Longing to die in beloved's arm Resting head on thy breast Bidding goodbye to beloved's heart Before going on eternal sleep! ..........Loved reading it.

Very emotional. Casually I looked at poetess's time line. She had a very short life. Thirty three years! She had all the love in the world but no time or energy to give back or enjoy what was once so wonderful. May be some illness. But she sure left the legacy of this beautiful poem for us.

How does a bird with a broken wing fly away? Metaphor doesn't work.
