.
It blinded me
I didn’t see it coming 
You and me
A love so astounding 
A love so pure
I didn’t think it could happen
Not for me
But you came along
And gave me all I need
A life
A love
A soul 
You’ve been there 
Shown me what love should be
You are my heart
My life line 
My true other half
You blinded me
But now I see
It was ways always meant to be 
You and me.

  • Born in County Durham, the eldest of 12 children, Elizabeth Barrett wrote poetry from the age of eleven. Her mother's collection of her poems forms one of the largest extant collections of juvenilia by any English writer. At 15 she became ill, suffering intense head and spinal pain for the rest of her life. Later in life she also developed lung problems, possibly tuberculosis. She took laudanum for the pain from an early age, which is likely to have contributed to her frail health.
In the 1840s Elizabeth was introduced to literary society through her cousin, John Kenyon. Her first adult collection of poems was published in 1838 and she wrote prolifically between 1841 and 1844, producing poetry, translation and prose. She campaigned for the abolition of slavery and her work helped influence reform in the child labour legislation. Her prolific output made her a rival to Tennyson as a candidate for poet laureate on the death of Wordsworth.
Elizabeth's volume Poems (1844) brought her great success, attracting the admiration of the writer Robert Browning. Their correspondence, courtship and marriage were carried out in secret, for fear of her father's disapproval. Following the wedding she was indeed disinherited by her father. The couple moved to Italy in 1846, where she would live for the rest of her life. They had one son, Robert Wiedeman Barrett Browning, whom they called Pen. She died in Florence in 1861.[3][4] A collection of her last poems was published by her husband shortly after her death.
Elizabeth's work had a major influence on prominent writers of the day, including the American poets Edgar Allan Poe and Emily Dickinson. She is remembered for such poems as "How Do I Love Thee?" (Sonnet 43, 1845) and Aurora Leigh (1856).

Tu jo paas nhi toh saare haalat adhure hn,

Jaise dimaag adhura ho, koii sonch adhuri ho, 
Maano saji hui dulhan pr Paazeb adhure ho'n,

Bagicha ho phool'n ka or titli ki kami ho,
Laakh phool khila ho mgr nazaare adhure hn,

Mera Dil adhura h, Jazbaat adhure hn, 
Tu jo paas nhi toh meri zaat adhuri h..

  • "If my logic says yes, but my soul says no, it's mean a damn no.
You know that feeling of pressure to say yes to things that in your brain sounds like you should do them, but in you heart, in your soul, you feel something wrong, you know you need to say no but you can't because you afraid to be wrong.
But maybe you ain't wrong? Think about it for a second, if it's was a yes, you won't feel any regrets or bad feelings about it, you'll want to do this not just because it's sound right but because you actually feel excited for it from inside, so why doing something that you feel it's wrong for you?"

  • Today, I learned an important lesson from my therapist. ⁣
At the end of our hour. she told me that although I’ve been hurt and broken badly, she can seel still have parts that aren't shattered. ⁣
I laughed lightly and I said 'Yeah, one day that will be all of me, no parts shattered anymore", And she said ‘No, it won‘t.”⁣
And, for a second, I felt my heart break but she continued. "But it will be the most dominant part of you. Think of your body if you break your shoulder, even after it heals it will be tender. It will be a sore spot. You will be careful with it. There will be a gentleness when you care for it. If you crack a rib, laughing will hurt and, even after there is no longer a fracture, you may laugh lighterjust in case. You can heal, but it is okay to be aware of the parts of you that once hurt the most. The most important thing to know is that where there is tenderness, let there be gentleness." ⁣

  • Viviamo, mia Lesbia, ed amiamo,
e ogni mormorio perfido dei vecchi
valga per noi la più vile moneta.
Il giorno può morire e poi risorgere,
ma quando muore il nostro breve giorno,
una notte infinita dormiremo.
Tu dammi mille baci, e quindi cento,
poi dammene altri mille, e quindi cento,
quindi mille continui, e quindi cento.
E quando poi saranno mille e mille,
nasconderemo il loro vero numero,
che non getti il malocchio l’invidioso
per un numero di baci così alto.

  • Buongiorno lettori, oggi parliamo di poesia ✨

Come avrete forse intuito, seguendomi nel tempo, non sono una grande consumatrice del genere;  preferisco la prosa, trovo che mi avvolga di più e, nel mio caso, riesca meglio a creare connessioni e legami: un modo un po’ catartico di ritrovarmi nelle storie dei personaggi, crescere e cambiare con loro. Eppure, sento mi manchi un pezzo, sento che c’è qualcosa nella poesia che non potrebbe farmi che bene ed eccomi qui oggi a parlarne.

Da classicista ho ovviamente studiato i più grandi poeti della letteratura italiana e non, senza però mai soffermarmi più del dovuto sui loro componimenti, salvo alcuni casi alla cui bellezza non ho saputo resistere. 
Leopardi, Foscolo, Pascoli, D’Annunzio, Ungaretti ed il qui presente Montale - in un’edizione vintage ma splendida - sono i primi nomi che mi vengono in mente quando penso a quei versi che mi hanno accarezzata, rendendomi consapevole del fatto che si, qualcosa mi manca. 
Mi rivolgo a voi quindi con mille interrogativi ma una sola richiesta: parlatemi di poesia, apritemi gli occhi con i vostri poeti del cuore ed insegnatemi un po’ ad amarla 💛 ——————— #cozyvibes #cozyhome #cozybedrooms #bookwarm #cozyhouse #cozybook #thecozydays #bloggeritalia #inspocafe #winterwonder #bookgram #book #coffee #bookvintage #paperlove #bookcommunity #bibliophile #cozyvibes #cozyhome #poetrylovers #bookwarm #cozyhouse #coffeelover #thecozydays #bloggeritalia #inspocafe #winterwonder #bookstagram #book #coffee #b #eugeniomontale #labuferaedaltro #italianpoetry #montale #poetryworld

  • We take our broken hearts
and place them in glass jars
and line them neatly 
in rows
on shelves.
We study them
like they are specimens
in a museum,
and compare notes.
A few let out moans and wails,
their sound so deafening
you can feel your bones shatter.
Some make soft music
that sneaks inside your skin
and makes you float
with the sadness it carries.
A few whisper 
nothing more than names,
perhaps of all the homes
they carried inside their walls.
And yet others
whisper a cheery tune
knowing that they will love again,
break again,
and love once more.
But there are a few
that go utterly still,
their paint chipped and cracked,
the flakes fluttering
like dandelion wings.
They shatter, piece by piece
until there is nothing left.
Then we watch, in fascination
as they rise from the ashes
stronger, brighter, fiercer,
whispering their stories
that ricochet around the walls.
These are the hearts
you should fear the most.
For they know 
they are damaged.
For they know
they can survive.

  • Moments are alive
As alive as a newborn,
And when I look back
To those which had you,
I forget to believe 
That now I feel lost.
Livin' with the recurring thoughts
In a home you left back,
The footprints 
We embedded in the floor,
Just like the memories of you.
In my mind,
I still look at your feet
Still mourn your presence.
Well,
People look for arms
That I fell back into
When I belonged to you
Even though I still do
But the world doesn't believe 
In all that I leave
Behind, and move forward
Towards a new home.
The walls took me aback
To satiate myself.
Yet, the entré and my 
Feet imprinted,
Again made me fall
Into you and
Your thoughts.
Come back and pick me,
Up, so I feel your wraith!
Come back and pick me,
Up, so I stay by your *qoud*. 🍁

  • Moments are alive
    As alive as a newborn,
    And when I look back
    To those which had you,
    I forget to believe
    That now I feel lost.

  • The world
combs all the magic
out of your skin
with its cruel fingers. 
But, don’t worry, darling. 
You are infinity
trapped inside a body. 
Your skin 
laughs in scars. 
Don’t let the world
shrink you to its size. [My skin blooms flowers every time you smile]
