The Love Song

Spread the love

output_6OBNPc

Let us go then, you and I (T.S. Eliot)

Senses somewhat blurred for I have let
Thus ruthless passion prey upon us
Though door swings wide I dare notΒ go
We get this feeling there and then
Hence heart unarmed laid bare to you
His eyes they often questioned “and?”
Besides but love what more have I

    Beautifully done. The last two lines are exquisite and made my mind and my heart immediately jump to what more need I. I always think that’s a wonderful thing when a wrIter can motivate a reader to interact with her or his words.

    There is always the fear of the unknown despite the promise of a great time. One treasures the secure side of life than to take too many risks! Rightly so Sanaa!

    Your choice of Eliot is so cool; a tough wordsmith to work from. I looked at E.E. Cummings, but finally decided to go with L. Cohen, who tops my list. Your piece is romantic, almost Victorian, with touches of classic vibes.

    To be left with nothing more–I suppose that is a common occurrence when passion is spent too soon. I love the shovel form which I’m learning from you and Mary this week.
