Perhaps I knew the rain falls,
And you knew the sea rises.

Maybe, we both knew they encounter.

But if you're the sky and I'm the ground,
How can we constantly watch each other,
Simply hoping we'll somehow meet again at the horizon?

How can the rain fall?
She sits manacled to her heavenly throne!
it is merely her reflection which touches the ground -
an illusion for the dry tongue
of the mortal.

I honestly don’t know if this is a piece you have created yourself or if it’s famous. But ever since I’ve done gcse English lit I’m a sucker for poetry and quotes! I love the way it makes you feel

Oh my gosh, same! Who is your favourite poet? I love Victorian literature, especially the Gothic stuff produced.

I’m a sucker for Shakespeare, I loved Macbeth. When we did poetry in class I loved “docker” by Seamus Heaney, “Belfast confetti” by ciaran Carson. There was so many more. I really want to buy a book with Victorian Or Edwardian English or as most teenagers say “old English” have u any suggestions?

You are so polite - surprisingly so. However, I will be the first one to say it was trash.
Since I am bored out of my mind and cannot go to sleep; shall we have a chat about writing poetry? Do you ever feel like you are a 'fake'? Whenever I write anything I feel like I am just putting words together in a pretentious effort to sound worldly. lol

I’m the same! I really wanna start writing poetry, so I’m going to do it soon! I always write about feelings or thoughts coming from a different angle of that makes sense.

If this was directed at me, YES. OMG have you tapped into Oscar Wilde yet? Or any other aesthete writer?
Currently I am reading 'of Human bondage' by William Somerset Maugham. It is such a good book, not an "old English" book but I defo recommend it.
As for Victorian literature, look into:
Robert L. Stevenson. Recommend his 'Jekyll and Hyde'
Mary Shelley

Not English, but I think you might also enjoy Edgar Alan Poe - American.

Omg thanks so much! I will definitely look into them! I’m pretty sure my school do “Jekyll and Hyde” for a level so it would be good to get a head start

Honestly really enjoyed reading that

And yeah, of course. Tbh I've never actually talked about poetry with anyone else before haha. Can't say I have felt 'fake'. I can only write things that I feel from within, every single word has a meaning for me, it's an amalgamation of emotions I try to convey through them. The downside to this is that I cannot write poetry on demand. I must be in a certain mood, often times it has to depressive, melancholic or heartbroken. But when it hits me, I can't stop. I could never write happy poems, for I cannot write what I cannot feel.

You are doing English Lit for A-level? Awww, I am so excited for you!
I would say check the spec because different exam boards do different topics. I did American literature (God, have I fallen in love with Steinbeck), pre-1900 drama. Good luck and good night!

You should read Shakespeare's Sonnets if you haven't already.. And if you liked Macbeth, you could read Hamlet too

I’m the same! I’m so glad I’ve found some people who understand me. Normally what I write is depressive too.
Actually in my mock exam for English language, we got the title “write about a time you will never forget” i just wrote from the heart. I got called out and stuff because my teacher wasn’t allowed to mark it because she didn’t want to put a grade on my emotions, so I had to end up writing something happy with I wrote about my baby sister.

I’ll definitely give them a try! I loved Steinbeck too. I did “of mice and men” for one of my gcse units and it was definitely my favourite! I still remember it! I did “an inspector calls” this year, it was easy enough but it just wasn’t as good as Steinbeck.

I read the text in bold with a feeling that was sadness but trespassed into bitter-sweetness. I personally dislike 'happy' poetry because language is inherently akin to a balm and what healthy being needs healing? I doubt literature is ever truly happy unless you consider 'Winnie The Pooh' to be serious literature. :rofl:
It must be so nice to know that what you write isn't fake. I suppose because my focus - when I write - is more on words and their beauty rather than what I sincerely feel, I can immediately see that what I write is just that and nothing more. Interesting chat. Well, do keep writing! And posting it. Also, sorry for spamming your thread. Night.

What did you think of Hamlet in 'Hamlet'? Do you think he was a noble prince or a destructive force in the play?
