Robert Frost One of my girl's English teacher had them study Robert Frost this year and this poem. The teacher told them that this was a poem of regret, that the speaker feels he made the wrong choice. I strongly disagree with that. I think that the speaker realizes that not taking the easy path enriched his life. I'm curious what others think about this poem. Is it about regret or gratitude?
Let me hold you through this journey. For something has finally been released in me, A physical and spiritual sensation, An envelope of caring, Twinning us here. For all this time I was mute, You consume me entirely. Stamped upon us forever...Our sounds, scents, aching.There is no world beyond What we have engineered. I will die first before I ever loose this feeling of complete love...
the things we love
Intimacy is a 4 syllable word for, "here's my heart and soul, please grind them into hamburger and enjoy" I'm just a girl in a bar. It's like candy, but with blood which is so much better. You can waste your lives drawing the lines or you can live your life crossing them. Denial. It's not just a rive in Egypt. It's a freakin' ocean. --We lie to ourselves because the truth...the truth freaking hurts. I've heard it's possible to grow up. I've just never met anyone who's actually done it.
