    I don't know why I like this poem because I'm not into the religious motifs, but then I like John Donne too....maybe it speaks to the latent Christian in me.

    I just think it's one the the best descriptions of the cyclical nature of bipolar disorder, which typically manifests seasonal patterns too.
    Ah yes, the metaphysical poets. Herbert favouring more tamer conceits contrary to Donne's highly sexualized ones (especially in his Holy Sonnets). I should note that allegedly, Herbert had a volume just as if not more obscene than Donne's before he decided to burn them and put out his collection called The Temple.

    This is not a riddle but it’s meant to entertain.
    I’ll be your loyal Apostle,
    just send me in to take the blame.
    Well what would you expect to say?
    It never mattered anyway
    There’ll be a site (sight)
    and an invisible light shown down on them and took them in
    There’ll be a time when, Maybe tonight temptations win And I give in.
    This is not a puzzle or mainframe
    But it’s meant to strengthen your faith
    And each time the night falls upon us
    We always end up the same,
    Were we not born into original sin?
    What you ask for is what you get
    and what you were given
    So fold your hands and get down on your knees
    You can call me Charles.

    An excellent thread idea. BUMP!


    Ask me no more

    Ask me no more: the moon may draw the sea;
    The cloud may stoop from heaven and take the shape,
    With fold to fold, of mountain or of cape;
    But O too fond, when have I answer'd thee?
    Ask me no more.

    Ask me no more: what answer should I give?
    I love not hollow cheek or faded eye:
    Yet, O my friend, I will not have thee die!
    Ask me no more, lest I should bid thee live;
    Ask me no more.

    Ask me no more: thy fate and mine are seal'd:
    I strove against the stream and all in vain:
    Let the great river take me to the main:
    No more, dear love, for at a touch I yield;
    Ask me no more.

    Alfred Lord Tennyson
    “Brighter, now brighter, pay no mind to those who squint, burn with all your heat.”
