Bitchiness is not a Crime

Just another woman who try to look wise

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

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
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

(I’m not in love… it’s just one of those poems that moves me)

  2. Love,
    I could feel thine and promise thee mine…
    tho’ I often just pretending blind
    if the way I choose is the way it should
    if mine is weak or moreover fake….

    Forgive me my Lord…
