Poetry is beautiful and mysterious... It is a way to express unruly human emotions with grace and beauty. It is born from pain, hardship and leaves the poet lighter for having expressed one's self

We all love mysterious quotes which belong to classical verse. Here are some of that  variety: 

Before me things created were none, save things
Eternal, and eternal I endure.
All hope abandon, ye who enter here.

Man is born to trouble
as the sparks fly upward.
-(Job 5:7)

Day of wrath, that day of burning,
Seer and Sibyl speak concerning,
All the world to ashes turning.
-(Abraham Coles)

I sung of chaos and eternal night,
Taught by the heav’nly Muse to venture down
The dark descent, and up to reascend…
-(John Milton, Paradise Lost)

I believe I am in Hell, therefore I am. -Arthur Rimbaud

“In my living fire, I will keep your scorn and mine
In my living fire I will keep your heartache and mine
At the disgrace of a waste of a life”
(Kristine Cashore)

“I have not slept
Between the acting of a dreadful thing
And the first motion…”
(William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar)

The descent beckons
As the ascent beckoned.
(William Carlos William)

I loved you, so I drew these tides of men into my hands and wrote my will across the sky in stars.
-T. E. Lawrence

 Stars, hide your fires,

Let not light see my black and deep desires;
The eye wink at the hand; yet let that be
Which the eye fears, when it is done, to see.
(Macbeth, William Shakespeare)

Fool’s Farewell

In that last dance of chances
I shall partner you no more.
I shall watch another turn you
As you move across the floor.

In that last dance of chances
When I bid your life good-bye
I will hope she treats you kindly.
I will hope you learn to fly.

In that last dance of chances
When I know you’ll not be mine
I will let you go with longing
And the hope that you’ll be fine.

In that last dance of chances
We shall know each other’s minds.
We shall part with our regrets
When the tie no longer binds.

Quote of the week

“He who is certain he knows the ending of things when he is only beginning them is either extremely wise or extremely foolish; No matter which is true, he is certainly an unhappy man for he has put a knife in the heart of wonder”

(Tad Williams)
