My Favourite Poem For You!!

Hey everyone! I hope you had a good weekend! I went to East Side Pride here where I live on Saturday, and it was a lot of fun. Today (Sunday) I slept a good portion of the day because I had exerted myself so much during the week.

Lately I have been reciting my favourite poems out loud before bed. Poetry is something that grounds me, and in a whirlwind of Epilepsy, I need all the grounding out there.

This is my favourite poem by e.e. cummings, and it was taped by my bedside in university. I saw it every single day when I swung my legs out of bed in the morning.

Dive for Dreams
ee cummings 

dive for dreams
or a slogan may topple you
(trees are their roots
and wind is wind)
trust your heart
if the seas catch fire
(and live by lovethough the stars walk backward)
honour the past
but welcome the future
(and dance your death
away at the wedding)
never mind a world
with its villains or heroes
(for good likes girls
and tomorrow and the earth)
in spite of everything
which breathes and moves, since Doom
(with white longest hands
neating each crease)
will smooth entirely our minds
-before leaving my room
i turn, and (stooping
through the morning) kiss
this pillow, dear
where our heads lived and were.

silently if, out of not knowable

silently if, out of not knowable
night’s utmost nothing,wanders a little guess
(only which is this world)more my life does
not leap than with the mystery your smile
sings or if(spiralling as luminous
they climb oblivion)voices who are dreams,
less into heaven certainly earth swims
than each my deeper death becomes your kiss
losing through you what seemed myself,i find
selves unimaginably mine;beyond
sorrow’s own joys and hoping’s very fears
yours is the light by which my spirit’s born:
yours is the darkness of my soul’s return
-you are my sun,my moon,and all my stars
