I haven’t posted here in a month. More than a month, more like.
I’m surprised all of you haven’t unfollowed me yet.
First off, I would like to say that I am incredibly sorry for not posting for such a long time, and I really have no excuse that could explain this other than the fact that I am simply a lazy teenager.
As a sort of apology gesture, I found a poem that I think you will enjoy by Louise Bogan:
I do not know where either of us can turn
Just at first, waking from the sleep of each other.
I do not know how we can bear
The river struck by the gold plummet of the moon,
Or many trees shaken together in the darkness.
We shall wish not to be alone
And that love were not dispersed and set free—
Though you defeat me,
And I be heavy upon you.
But like earth heaped over the heart
Is love grown perfect.
Like a shell over the beat of life
Is love perfect to the last.
So let it be the same
Whether we turn to the dark or to the kiss of another;
Let us know this for leavetaking,
That I may not be heavy upon you,
That you may blind me no more.
I hope you enjoyed that poem, and I hope to post many more in the future, though this may change when I get swept up in all things college. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to blog in college, and it’s going to be a hard thing to give up. That’s because if I do choose to leave this blog, I know that I will be leaving a group of people who have supported me in my literary endeavors, who engrossed me with their own posts, and who, most importantly, created such a wonderful environment that enabled me to grow as a writer, reader and person. All of you are so amazing, and I hope that you continue blogging so that, in a few months, if I feel my fingers itching to type another post, I can log on and be swept back up into the blogosphere.
Thank you so much, and goodbye to all.
(At least for now.)
