Edna St. Vincent Millay

I know what my heart is like

Since your love died:

It is like a hollow ledge

Holding a little pool

Left there by the tide,

A little tepid pool,

Drying inward from the edge.

About...

This poem to me is about how a person still loved there partner even though they were not loved back. the author also explains how it hurt there heart. I also feel like they want them to come back to fix the pain and the hurt.

Why...

I'm really fond of love poems and tragic poems as well. I think it's because they bring a lot of character and interesting factors along with them. I also like how all of them are mostly the same but bring there own differences as well.

Mayday Parade- Three Cheers For Five Years



I swear that you don't have to go
I thought we could wait for the fireworks
I thought we could wait for the snow
To wash over Georgia and kill the hurt
I thought I could live in your arms
And spend every moment I had with you
Stay up all night with the stars
Confess all the faith that I had in you (I had in you)

Too late, I'm sure and lonely
Another night, another dream wasted on you
Just be here now against me
You know the words, so sing along for me, baby

For heaven's sake I know you're sorry
But you won't stop crying
This anniversary may never be the same
Inside I hope you know I'm dying
With my heart beside me
In shattered pieces that may never be replaced
And if I died right now you'd never be the same

I thought with a month of apart
Together would find us an opening
And moonlight would provide the spark
And that I would stumble across the key
Or break down the door to your heart
Forever could see us - not you and me
And you'd help me out of the dark
And I'd give my heart as an offering (an offering)

Too late, I'm sure and lonely
Another night, another dream wasted on you
Just be here now against me
You know the words, so sing along for me, baby

For heaven's sake I know you're sorry
But you won't stop crying
This anniversary may never be the same
Inside I hope you know I'm dying
With my heart beside me
In shattered pieces that may never be replaced
And if I died right now you'd never be the same

And I will always remember you as you are right now to me
And I will always remember you now, remember you now

So sleep alone tonight with no one here just by your side
Sleep alone tonight

How does he feel, how does he kiss?
(Let's sleep alone tonight)
How does he taste while he's on your lips?
(With no one here just by your side)
How does he feel, how does he kiss?
(Sleep alone tonight)
[x3]

I can't forget you
(Let's sleep alone tonight)
I know you want me to want you, I want to
(With no one here just by your side)
But I can't forget you
(Sleep alone tonight)
So when this is over don't blow your composure, baby
I can't forget you
(Let's sleep alone tonight)
I know you want me to want you, I want to
(With no one here just by your side)
But I can't forget you
(Sleep alone tonight)
So when this is over don't blow your composure

I can't forget you
I know you want me to want you, I want to

Connection...

I chose this song because he also talks about his relationship and how he doesn't want it to end but shes not interested in him any more. Hes also say "Inside I hope you know I'm dying With my heart beside me In shattered pieces that may never be replaced." I felt like that really helps connect the song with the poem.

The Broken Heart By Benji

I loved you

I cared for you

through the good times and your rough time too

I know it may sound crazy but she broke my heart is shattered dude

Dude you say that Im crazy its true

I'm not trying to fight I'm not trying to feud

I swear that ill change, cause this feeling to me is some what new

you stood up walked, right out the door you left

she kept talking to these other guys its like they posed a threat

Come on hurry up call 911 for theft

but it turned out i just drop my heart when i lost my breath
