It follows the conventional elegy format. The speaker reflects on the memory of her past lover, questioning if time has depleted the love she felt for him and asks for forgiveness if she does for ‘other desires and other hopes beset her ' but she believes they cannot do her past lover wrong. From this, we can see the speaker is struggling to let go of the memory of her lover because she is frightened that if she does, she will forget him entirely. The speakers thoughts no longer rest "their wings" over her lover as they did formerly. Peeck-O 'Toole (39) argues, the speaker only measures time as it separates her from her loverTop of Form.Bottom of Form Any sense of real time, of life that continues normally is seen as an unwelcome occurrence, ‘the world 's tide is bearing ' her along.
The narrator assumes forgetting her lover will make the pain better and is angry at her heart for not allowing her to forget him. She wants to forget him as soon as possible “Haste! Lest while you’re lagging” (7), once again using an exclamation point to indicate anger and hurry, wanting the pain to end. The narrator is angry at herself for not being able to forget him and letting him get to her. This poem may allude to an unrequited love interest of Dickinson’s and the pain that comes with it.
This shows love as it explains that the person who is dying cares about the other person and how they feel. They are putting the other person’s feelings before their legacy and this shows true love. In the poem “La Belle Dame Sans Merci” the poet tries to put across the feeling that the love in the poem is only an illusion and that there is no
The author Eric Hanson reminds me to prioritize my happiness and let go of things that are making me gloomy through the character in the poem ‘Holding on and letting go’. This text is about an individual who finds it difficult to discard the emotional attachment she has developed to the thing that is hurting her. The character mentions, “I always thought that holding on, was worth the pain it takes.” She has settled on sacrificing her own happiness most likely in fear of hurting someone or someone hurting her. But in the end, she makes a choice to put herself above the satisfaction of others and realize that positive things can come out of letting go. The negative connotations at the start of the poem made me feel helpless as a reader because the character seemed to be in a powerless struggle with her conscience.
It is human nature. The song and Prior are both saying, it is not what they did, abandon, but how they made them feel, abandoned. They will remember that feeling forever; it cannot be forgotten like they were. The reason it is so hard to feel abandoned by love, like how the singer and Prior felt, is because they both very much loved the one abandoning them, making them feel inadequate to ever love
The two poems, “Annabel Lee” by Edgar Allan Poe and the poem, “i carry your heart with me(i carry it in my heart)” by E E Cummings, have similarities becasue they both have the same theme of love. In the poem, “Annabel Lee” by Edgar Allan Poe, the author writes the poem in a very overwhelming and emotional way. In this poem, the author talks about losing someone that they love and having the person taken away from them. Even though the poem is very dark and mentions death, it still is very powerful due to the theme of love. In a passionate and determined tone, the author states, “But our love was stronger… Nor the demons down under the sea, can ever dissever my soul from the soul, of the beautiful Annabel Lee” (Poe 27, 31-33).
In reality when our beloved people leave us, we feel the same sadness of missing them from the beginning and the rest in our life. In the next line “cause love comes slow and it goes so fast” here love is the sign of happiness and it is so hard to find the happiness but we lose it very easily. “Well you see her when you fall asleep, but never to touch never to keep” remind us the person left us forever, but still they are in our mind but we cannot touch them. It also shows that although we feel guilty, but in reality whatever or whoever goes it never comes back. Next line shows us distance doesn’t matter because the person we loved they always stay in our deep heart.
The speaker of the lyric begins by tending to a lady who has been ease back to react to his sentimental advances. In the principal stanza he depicts how he would love her if he somehow managed to be unrestricted by the limitations of a typical life expectancy.

When life is finished, the speaker battles, the chance to appreciate each other is gone, as nobody grasps in death.
It is notable that in this poem, their relationship isn’t characterized by any direct interaction but only her own perception, watching and imitating Daddy from a distance. Thus, there’s a sense of distance, of incompatibility, and a feeling of something lacking in their relationship that torments the speaker. The poem describe her final effort to detach herself from this struggle, which predicts her death. With admiration, fear, dominance, and distance, the relationship between the speaker of Daddy and her father could be like every other family of the twentieth century. However, her father’s abrupt death has revealed its detrimental flaws by leaving her with a lack of an independent personality and decades of mental suffering.
Seize the day my friend. Your heart won’t acknowledge their absence and then you will fall in love with their memories. Memories will be the only things left. Don’t let your love fall apart. Love is horrid and terrible, but it would be a less terrifying if you will tell them how much your heart is aching for them.
