I carry your heart

I absolutely adore 'i carry your heart' by ee cummings, it's my favourite love poem as it so lovingly old school compared to anything nowadays where love is fraught with troubles and woes. It describes a love that is incredible and beautiful almost like a fantasy. The hopeless romantic that I am when I read words about a love that is not bound by time or geography, for that love is kept within the adoring walls of their lover's heart, makes my own heart melt. Cummings writes that his love is with him wherever he goes and whatever he does she does also even when she is not physically with him, like they're the same person. It reminds me of Catherine describing her and Heathcliff's relationship that they are the same person. Although this relationship appears much less destructive and volatile than Catherine and Heathcliffs. 

i carry your heart with me

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

Hey guys,

check me out on POLYVORE, which is this incredible virtual styling site that allows anyone to create and style looks using images on their webiste.

I've added a badge on here so you can click on and view some of the sets that i've created.

I really should be getting to bed now... night x

Let's begin...

When i'm meeting someone new I always want to start with a cool joke to break the ice you know but I never seem to be able to pull them off. Probably because I'm kinda goofy and not so socially eloquent as I would like to be...but here goes

"how much does a polar bear weigh....."
"enough to break the ice..."

^ classic breaking the ice joke but it was so cheesy I couldn't resist!

Anyway, this blog is a place where I can write down my thoughts about a whole lots of topics from fashion to film, basically anything that inspires me or I want to talk about. 

So I hope that you enjoy whatever I write.

Goodnight x
