I hate the day, because it lendeth light
To see all things, but not my love to see.
With what a deep devotedness of woe
I wept thy absence - o'er and o'er again
Thinking of thee, still thee, till thought grew pain,
And memory, like a drop that, night and day,
Falls cold and ceaseless, wore my heart away!

Give me but one kind word to think upon,
And please myself with, while my heart's breaking.

of chafing my heart against
the want of you;
of squeezing it into little inkdrops,
And posting it.

But that it went in little ways.

...Lost in your heart, lost in your eyes
Lost every day, no map to follow
Entire days, weeks, a blur
Flickers of light, in the darkness,
Only to be enveloped in shadows once more...
