    I posted this the other day but thought it was so beautiful that it deserved a thread on its own. Can other people share things they love on this thread.


    My soul is dark

    My soul is dark – Oh! quickly string
    The harp I yet can brook to hear;
    And let thy gentle fingers fling
    Its melting murmur o’er mine ear.
    If in this heart a hope be dear,
    That sound shall charm it forth again:
    If in these eyes there lurk a tear,
    ‘Twill flow, and cease to burn my brain.

    But bid the strain be wild and deep,
    Nor let thy notes of joy be first:
    I tell thee, minstrel, I must weep,
    Or else this heavy heart will burst;
    For it had been by sorrow nursed,
    And ached in sleepless silence long;
    And now ‘tis doomed to know the worst,
    And break at once – or yield to song.

    I have no pain, dear mother, now,
    but Oh! I am so dry.
    Connect me to a brewery
    and leave me there to die.



    I also have a drawing of an enormously rotund woman falling off her chair with a box in her hand and "happily dying of chocolate" written underneath.

    Now, would I go for the drink or the chocolate?

    I managed to blag my way onto a English dept. creative writing retreat to Devon in April (despite the fact I don't do English - yet. I may do Lit+Lang next year).

    Here is some of the stuff I wrote...

    The poem of the deluge

    A torrent of rain falls from the sky
    But the umbrella
    Provides no escape

    The poem of the icicles

    Shards of ice
    Hang from the eaves
    Like glass talons

    Open window

    Peering through this open window,
    At the moon, the stars, the rolling banks of eternity,
    A single teardrop wells inside,
    At this window of opportunity.

    i'd rather die in chocolate, least i'd remember my last moments on earth, even if i was 40 stone
