My top 3 love poems.
Welcome to day 5 of my blog marathon!
(check my archives in the side bar to see previous posts. I am writing a new post every day for a month!)
On valentines day, I had put up a post on my Instagram: 5 things to NEVER do on Valentines! It got a lot of responses--and you can view it HERE. (In my Instagram post, I've talked about why you should not feel bad about being single, and why love is the most precious thing we can have in our lives/
Do read the short carousel post!)
Hence for my blog post, I thought I would share my top 3 love poems. Here are my top 3, in no particular order:
Your absence has gone through me
Like thread through a needle.
Everything I do is stitched with its colour.
How do I love three?
How do I
love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight.
---Elizabeth Barret Browning
Minding my own business and drinking beer.
Then I met this girl at Joe’s
Who wrote poems on the back
Of napkins with ketchup.
Show me your heart, she said.
Don’t have one, I said.
She said hearts were what made her go.
Finally, I dug up the old, dark thing.
And she said, oh, but this is a grenade.
I told you, I said, and bit the pin.
