I read a poem from Rory last night HERE which I found very moving entitled ‘Foolishly Romantic’. I have not reblogged it. You have probably already seen it, for he has a far wider readership than do I. If you haven’t read it then, of course, I commend it to you.
It is a very honest piece and I think it is supposed to be about his perceived shortcomings and failings (at the time … I note that it was written some years ago). In the end, though, I think it is about being human.
I was reminded, for some reason, of a quote from Kurt Vonnegut who says,
“When a couple has an argument nowadays they may think it s about money or power or sex or how to raise the kids or whatever. What they’re really saying to each other, though without realizing it, is this: “You are not enough people!”
I take that to mean that, no matter how much you love someone, and no matter how much they love you, you will never be everything – so you will never be quite enough.
The sun descends
Behind a cloud
My thoughts of you
I share aloud
In whispers to
I know not where
You are still there
For in my thoughts
I give you life
And you will always be
Be my dreams
I am a fool for love

It was a lovely semi colon. Thank you. And a lovely poem. Oops, poems. One of yours, one of his.
Beautifully penned! Love “Foolishly Romantic” too. It is fascinating how a poem can inspire another.
