Get, Got, Gotten.


Oh, Forever Kept,you are indeed someone's dearest,
and indefinitely through love you keep drifting from your conscious.
“But why? Why can't we be?” you ask.
And what does it mean for us to have each other?
We are the youngest of young, spinning the weakest of webs,
-our pathetic little strands of silk captured and tangled up into nothing.
See now, it is the love of our own hearts that harms us,
our innermost thoughts pleading to satisfy our self destructing desires.
And what does it mean for us to sit on ocean banks at sunset,
and profess our love for each other along these same heartless shores that have taken away countless others in their passions for a pointless nothing,
who have went down into the oceans treacherous deep,
with barely their wedding rings. Won't we too die with nothing?
And when simple mercies chase the tides away,
it is your own lust that will bring them back again,
only this time one of us has to escape with nothing.
Tell me dear, what is love to us now?
“Save me! Save me, my love! Please help!”, you plead.
And what would it mean if ever I saved you, so that we should be together?
What would this mean for us?


The author's comments:
the speaker's rejecting someone thats fiercely in love with them. he/she mocks them in the beginning by calling them "someone's dearest", sarcastically implying this person doesnt mean anything to them. he/she says they are young and not ready for love, referring to it as a "pointless nothing." he/she takes pleasure in indirectly stating the two will never be together. in the end, the speaker leaves the person to die-literally. I guess the title is just the speakers way of saying "what do you have to say now?" tell me what you think.

No problem. I use the internet well into the night sometimes, just cause sometimes that's the only time I get to use it.

Some love poems you just can't give to people. :)

The reason why this poem reminds me of Annabel Lee is because it's about a love that can never happen and because they are young and because it talks about the ocean a lot. All these are main themes of Annabel Lee. Have you read that poem?

Again, a beautiful love poem. :)

Reminds me of Annabel Lee by Edgar Allen Poe.

boosism is loving "the clever speech which twists around a heartless concept." The Ravens input is most awesome and most appreciated and MOST HELPFUL. let me refer to the request of the author:tell me what you think. Boosism is thanking The Raven.

"il piu nell' uno," (according to Emerson, an Italian expression for beauty)

"Unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality" ~Emily Dickinson

"The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain"
~Kahlil Gibran

You gotta hand it to the cynics; it's a little satisfying to see the lover's love evaporate into nothingness.

The Raven likes the blunt tongue, so it admires the he/she for taking pleasure in rejection. It also admires the clever speech which twists around a heartless concept. If it had to pick a favorite line, it would choose them all, and relish the verbal meal. Excellence, Boosflash, utter excellence.
