I’ve never been in love, and I’m not very loved, and I don’t think I’ll ever fall in love.

I’d really like to, one day. But I don’t know if I’m capable. I don’t think I’m capable. I don’t expect it, and I have no hope for it in my life.

Nevertheless, I still think about love, a lot, even though I probably can’t love, and I can’t be loved.

This is a very well-known poem, but every once in a while, when I feel breakable and like I really want to be held, even just to pretend that that is what love feels like, it pops into my head, and that familiar ache intensifies just a little before I allow myself to daydream a bit about what will never be.

I just wanted to share it with someone since it was in my head tonight, and since I’ve got no one right now, I want to share it here, with all of you. How unlucky for you. 😛


i carry your heart with me

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is youhere is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

–e.e. cummings


It’s just…so beautiful to me. It haunts me. I’d even get this tattooed on me, even though I’ve never felt like this before and I probably can’t really comprehend the feeling in this. But this is one of the things that when it haunts me, I welcome it. (I’m a disgusting romantic haha.)
If any of you have any poems that haunt you, I’d like to hear them, please.
Thanks for reading, and take care.

I always imagine my never-happening love life’s motto would be: “I love you so much! …ugh that’s gross yuuuuck ewww go away uggh <3"
Haha..sounds nice and fun, but just impossible for me.

I like Dr. Seuss a lot XD They’re mostly aimed for kids (though there are plenty of adult lessons hidden there as well…), but his word choice is so fun. I wonder what he was like as a person.

Eeek! Sorry, sportsnut! That was completely unintentional, I was like three quarters asleep!

But…”sportsnug” does sound kinda cute, right? Like “sportsnugget.” Yaay.
