You are tired,
Of the always puzzle of living and doing;
And so am I.
Come with me, then,
And we’ll leave it far and far away—
(Only you and I, understand!)
You have played,
And broke the toys you were fondest of,
And are a little tired now;
Tired of things that break, and—
So am I.
But I come with a dream in my eyes tonight,
And knock with a rose at the hopeless gate of your heart—
Open to me!
For I will show you the places Nobody knows,
And, if you like,
The perfect places of Sleep.
Ah, come with me!
I’ll blow you that wonderful bubble, the moon,
That floats forever and a day;
I’ll sing you the jacinth song
Of the probable stars;
I will attempt the unstartled steppes of dream,
Until I find the Only Flower,
Which shall keep (I think) your little heart
While the moon comes out of the sea.
I love this poem. I think this is my expression of a proposal. It is simple love. Life is exhausting . Each moment feels like a struggle as if I’m constantly facing a battle. Even though I would always choose to face them myself , and be the strong independent spirit I have always been, somethings need someone to hold your hand or someone’s shoulder to lay your head on.
This poem to me is a declaration of commitment and love. He is standing before you and saying that he see the pain on your face and the weakness in your eyes from giving the world so much of who you are. The remains of the everyday battles. He sees you because he to has faced these battles, he too struggles through life. But he provides you with hope . A promise for something more.Let’s leave this place. Let’s go towards the light of the moon. Give him your hurt and you can live in love, free from the tiring world you’ve always known. Go away with him, and find peace. he does promise to give you the world. but to make the one you find a home.
Maybe I’m romancing pain, but this poem is my version of a white knight. If someone said this to me I’d leave to the unknown with them right there and then.:)
