She was a Phantom of Delight

She was a phantom of delight

When first she gleamed upon my sight;

A lovely Apparition, sent

To be a moment's ornament;

Her eyes as stars of Twilight fair;

Like Twilight's, too, her dusky hair;

But all things else about her drawn

From May-time and the cheerful Dawn;

A dancing Shape, an Image gay,

To haunt, to startle, and way-lay.
I saw her upon a nearer view,

A Spirit, yet a Woman too!

Her household motions light and free,

And steps of virgin liberty;

A countenance in which did meet

Sweet records, promises as sweet;

A Creature not too bright or good

For human nature's daily food;

For transient sorrows, simple wiles,

Praise, blame, love, kisses, tears and smiles.

And now I see with eye serene

The very pulse of the machine;

A Being breathing thoughtful breath,

A Traveler between life and death;

The reason firm, the temperate will,

Endurance, foresight, strength, and skill;

A perfect Woman, nobly planned,

To warm, to comfort, and command;

And yet a Spirit still, and bright,

With something of angelic light.

-By William Wordsworth

Another day without her

Another day without her,

So I cried myself to sleep.

But in my dreams I found her,

And her love had made me weak.

The joy I had been searching for,

I found as I slept,

In my dreams I found her,

Only after I had wept.

Then I woke and realized,

She was nowhere to be found,

My heart had dropped out of my chest,

And shattered on the ground.

Why can’t my reality be my dreams?

Why can’t my dreams be true in life?

To finally find her forever,

And leave behind the strife.

I lay there bound by sorrow,

Depression in every breath I take,

Another day without her,

So I cry myself awake.

You Don't Know It

strange how i love you more than ever now.
now that i cannot hold you.
now that i can only watch you from a far.
you are my weight.
freedom is in my hands.

i am no longer bound to you.
but i bind myself to you.
you are the stone tied to the end of my string.
i am the balloon reaching for the sky.
i cannot help but float close to the ground.

i miss you.
how much.
you will never know.
i want to let go.
like you have.
but i can't.
"it's not so bad.
you don't want me back.
it's not so bad.
you're just.. the best I've ever had"

you don't know it.
but i would do anything for you.

you don't know it.
i still take keep that photo of us around with me.

you don't know it.
but you remind me of the time when i knew who i was.

you don't know it.
but i still love you.

I will always hold you higher than anyone else.
