my love, E.E. Cummings

animal-wallpaper-with-a-group-flying-doves.jpgmy love
thy hair is one kingdom
the king whereof is darkness
thy forehead is a flight of flowers
thy head is a quick forest
filled with sleeping birds
thy breasts are swarms of white bees
upon the bough of thy body
thy body to me is April
in those armpits is the approach of spring
thy thighs are white horses yoked to a chariot
of kings
they are the striking of a good minstrel
between them is always a pleasant song
my love
thy head is a casket
of the cool jewel of thy mind
the hair of thy head is one warrior
innocent of defeat
thy hair upon thy shoulders is an army
with victory and with trumpets
thy legs are the trees of dreaming
whose fruit is the very eatage of forgetfulness
thy lips are satraps in scarlet
in whose kiss is the combinings of kings
thy wrists
are holy
which are the keepers of the keys of thy blood
thy feet upon thy ankles are flowers in vases
of silver
in thy beauty is the dilemma of flutes
thy eyes are the betrayal
of bells comprehended through incense.

Egypt: Film Hepta

Dear Wonderful Reader,

I present to you this lovely Arabic song from the Egyptian film, Hepta. Hepta is Greek for seven. The film suggests that there seven stages of love.

Please enjoy a taste of Egypt and Romance!

 

I love how this song was able to capture the delicate and tender feelings that we feel in the very beginning stages of love. I have always been drawn to art that was able to capture that because I feel that It’s a very challenging task and can easily be perceived as phony or cheesy. Thankfully, there is still hope because every now and then I stumble upon something that teleports me to times when I felt those tender, sweet feelings and I couldn’t be happier to share it with you.

Justin Timberlake Says it Better

[Verse 1]
Said all I want from you is to see you tomorrow
And every tomorrow, maybe you’ll let me borrow your heart
And is it too much to ask for every Sunday
And while we’re at it, throw in every other day to start

I know people make promises all the time
Then they turn right around and break them
When someone cuts your heart open with a knife, and you’re bleeding
But I could be that guy to heal it over time
And I won’t stop until you believe it
‘Cause baby you’re worth it

[Chorus]
So don’t act like it’s a bad thing to fall in love with me
‘Cause you might fuck around and find your dreams come true, with me
Spend all your time and your money just to find out that my love was free
So don’t act like it’s a bad thing to fall in love with me, me
It’s not a bad thing to fall in love with me, me

[Verse 2]
Now how about I’d be the last voice you hear tonight?
And every other night for the rest of the nights that there are
Every morning I just wanna see you staring back at me
‘Cause I know that’s a good place to start

I know people make promises all the time
Then they turn right around and break them
When someone cuts your heart open with a knife, and you’re bleeding
Don’t you know that I could be that guy to heal it over time
And I won’t stop until you believe it
‘Cause baby you’re worth it

[Chorus]
So don’t act like it’s a bad thing to fall in love with me
‘Cause you might fuck around and find your dreams come true, with me
Spend all your time and your money just to find out that my love was free
So don’t act like it’s a bad thing to fall in love with me, me
It’s not a bad thing to fall in love with me, me
It’s not a bad thing to fall in love with me, me
Not such a bad thing to fall in love with me
(Not such a bad thing to fall in love with me)

No I won’t fill your mind
With broken promises and wasted time
And if you fall, you’ll always land right in these arms
These arms of mine

[Chorus]
Don’t act like it’s a bad thing to fall in love with me
‘Cause you might fuck around and find your dreams come true, with me
Spend all your time and your money just to find out that my love was free
So don’t act like it’s a bad thing to fall in love with me, me
It’s not a bad thing to fall in love with me, me
Not such a bad thing to fall in love with me

A Happy Monologue About Unrequited Love

fault-in-our-stars-posterI love you. And I know that you don’t love me back. And that’s okay because I can’t make you love me. But, I am here with you and there is nobody or nowhere else I’d rather be. I may look back at this and feel stupid, but If I didn’t say what I am saying then I’ll live wondering what could’ve been… You were my first kiss, and I want you to be my last kiss. Your presence changes the molecules in my body in this weird way, that I have never felt with anyone before. It’s been five years since our first kiss and I have dated and kissed many boys; they made me happy and they made me sad… But then, I forget them. But you… You stay with me, even when you’re not present. You make all the sappy poetry and all those stupid love songs make sense. I can never imagine myself saying those ridiculous things to anyone but you. In fact, I want to say them to you. I want to stare deeply into your eyes and just lay there next to you forever. You make me go tinder; you were my sweetest kiss. I know this sounds really scary to you, but don’t worry, I’ll never pressure you or force myself into your life. I just wanted to say those things out loud to you and see what It feels like. It will probably hurt tomorrow and it may hurt for a while. But, I won’t regret it because you made me taste what love is and what’s it’s like to completely lose yourself in someone, and act like an idiot, and say idiotic things and it’s sweet and beautiful and dangerous and scary but, it makes me feel happy and free. And one day, I know I’ll share that with someone who will love me back and it will be sweet and beautiful too. So Whatever happens tomorrow, we’ve had today… Life is too short and I don’t wanna waste any passing moment without kissing you if I could. So come here and kiss me…”

They say the best love is insane”

Dear Wonderful Reader,

I feel really strongly about this song at this moment, and I wanna share it with you.

Suit Case by The New Electric Sound

Wake me in the morning
I don’t want to sleep very long.
I’ll unpack my suitcase
only if you you pick up the phone.

Only if we could say we’re sorry.
Only if we could say we’re not.
Only if you could say you loved me.
Only if I was the one.

Wake me in the evening
I don’t wan’t to get out of bed.
I’ll pick up my laundry
only if you open the door.

Only if we could say we’re sorry.
Only if we could say we’re not.
Only if you could say you loved me.
Only if I was the one.

I don’t want to waste my time.
I just want to dance all night.
I don’t want to wait for you all of my life.
I don’t want to close my eyes.
I just want to dance all night.
I don’t want to wait for you all of my life.

Wake me in the weekend,
I don’t care if sleep too long,
I’ll take out the garbage,
Only if you pick up that phone.

Only if we could say we’re sorry.
Only if we could say we’re not.
Only if you could say you loved me.
Only if I was the one.

I don’t want to waste my time.
I just want to dance all night.
I don’t want to wait for you all of my life.
I don’t want to close my eyes.
I just want to dance all night.
I don’t want to wait for you all of my life.

I told you I’m never gonna leave again.
And I swear.
You told me your never gonna cheat again.
I don’t care.
Tell my heart a million times,
and that won’t change me none.
If we need some time to think girl,
you’re not the one.

I don’t want to waste my time.
I just want to dance all night.
I don’t want to wait for you all of my life.
I don’t want to close my eyes.
I just want to dance all night.
I don’t want to wait for you all of my life.

Poem: First Love is Such Sweet Despair

First love is such sweet despair

She fell for the worst kind
so sudden and so deep
Its true, love is blind
At night, she couldn’t sleep

First love is such sweet despair

They went everywhere
Everything was so sweet
Charge filled the air
Magnetic force urged their lips to meet

First love is such sweet despair
