Before going out for a meeting, I just wanna share this poem. Found it displayed in a train in KL. What a considerate public service for my restless soul. It just caught my weary eyes and I love to read and read it again... laugh

Sonnet XLIII

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, - I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! - and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861)

no, that one was by Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

Elizabeth "Bollocks Browning" was a different poet.

"true love" is something invented by women to enslave men and force them to be monogamous.

I am in monogamy from the neck up - sometimes! The rest of me is free to do with as I see fit.

I encountered true love once, then it bit me in the ass!

Ah, I used to work in an all ladies office. Lots of noise, but on the plus side there were the minge benfits.

Hello Dili, good afternoon? Still driling?
Your avatar reminds me to my brother t-shirt, he likes to wear that, especially when he got drunk! But it doesn't mean that was a bad person isn't? I like stuff guy actually.

Here my favorite poem :
Echo

Come to me in the silence of the night;
Come in the speaking silence of a dream;
Come with soft rounded cheeks and eyes as bright
As sunlight on a stream;
Come back in tears,
O memory of hope, love of finished years.

O dream how sweet, too sweet, too bitter-sweet,
Whose wakening should have been in Paradise,
Where souls brim-full of love abide and meet;
Where thirsting longing eyes
Watch the slow door
That opening, letting in, lets out no more.

Yet come to me in dreams, that I may live
My very life again though cold in death;
Come back to me in dreams, that I may give
Pulse for pulse, breath for breath:
Speak low, lean low,
As long ago, my love, how long ago.
(Christina Georgina Rossetti)

Be silent! Be silent!
For love behaves contrary to normal.
Here the meaning hides itself if you talk too much.
