Mary Shelley’s handwritten poem “Absence”, on the death of her husband. The poem reads:
Ah! he is gone — and I alone;How dark and dreary seems the time!‘Tis Thus, when the glad sun is flown,Night rushes o’er the Indian clime.Is there no star to cheer this nightNo soothing twilight for the breast?Yes, Memory sheds her fairy light,Pleasing as sunset’s golden west.And hope of dawn — Oh! brighter farThan clouds that in the orient burn;More welcome than the morning starIs the dear thought — he will return!

Ah! he is gone — and I alone;
How dark and dreary seems the time!
‘Tis Thus, when the glad sun is flown,
Night rushes o’er the Indian clime.

Is there no star to cheer this night
No soothing twilight for the breast?
Yes, Memory sheds her fairy light,
Pleasing as sunset’s golden west.

And hope of dawn — Oh! brighter far
Than clouds that in the orient burn;
More welcome than the morning star
Is the dear thought — he will return!

I only wish for one more moment

One more moment of us

Of what we once were

To experience that feeling just one more time

The feeling of being in love with you

But without the pain I have inside me now

I only wish for one more moment

Of bliss.

I read over old diaries of mine

It is as if every thought I have had

For the last three years

Have all been about you

You plague my mind

And I fear there is no cure.

Sometimes even the people you love will let you down

Sometimes even the people you love will make you cry

Sometimes even the people you love will make your blood boil

Sometimes even the people you love will hurt you

Sometimes even the people you love will seem heartless

Sometimes even the people you love will joke at your expense

Sometimes even the people you love will seem as if they do not love you

Sometimes even the people you love will not deserve such love

Sometimes even the people you love are the worst kinds of people.

A Phone Call

And I just thought I would give you call,

I suppose, because I missed you all.

I’m not really sure where to start,

In fact, I’m pretty close to falling apart.

I know this isn’t supposed to be easy,

But I wonder if I’m supposed to feel quite this queasy.

I am certain that I’m not making any sense,

But be sure this is my attempt to make amends.

I guess I’ll just finish off with an ‘I love you’,

And an ‘I hope you love me, too’.

Hello my new year

Please treat me well my dear

For 2012 was not the best

To be true, it left me quite bereft.

I hope this year my dreams come true

I hope this year will be good to you, too.

Goodbye to the old

Let this year be bold

Hello to the new

Let the problems be few

Goodbye 2012

Hello 2013.

One day, every thing changed.

And it was as if we had never even known each other.

When did I decide that you were going to be the ruler of me?

When did I decide that you would rule my heart, my head, my emotions, my body?

When did I decide that you were the most important thing to me?

When did I decide that you came before everything else; even me?

When did I decide that you could break my heart?

When did I decide that you could make me feel like this?

When did I decide any of this?

I’m not sure of the answer.

I’m not even sure there is an answer.

Because if it had been up to me, I would never have decided any of these things.
