[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in my heart)] by e.e. cummings

[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in my heart)]

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 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)

MY SECRET DREAM: That rappers and hip-hop artists read more poetry, played with more poetry. The things they could do then…

THE STRETCHED-OUT METAPHOR: When you text me, lover, I carry you with me in my pocket. And sometimes, I don’t check the message right away… I just enjoy knowing you’re there. Enjoy the anticipation. What did you say, what do you want? It’s nice. It’s silly. It just is.

TIE IT TO THE BOOK: It’s all about the phone in the pocket, phone in the hand, phone in-between the bedsheets. The phone is the main protagonist. Really. I explain this to the art director. “Phones are not sexy,” he says. I prove him wrong.


PS Tell me… where do I buy the damn book…

About mjanecolette

Writer. Reader. Angster. Reformed Bohemian (not). Author of the erotic romance Tell Me, the erotic tragedy (with a happy ending) Consequences (of defensive adultery), and the rom-com (she's versatile) Cherry Pie Cure, as well as the non-fiction collection of essays Rough Draft Confessions: not a guide to writing and selling erotica and romance but full of inside inside anyway. Coming in 2018: Text Me, Cupid, a steamy romance in four episodes. Current WiPs: Queer Christmas in Cowtown, Jewel of the Not-So-Spectacular Boobs, All In the Cards, and Un-Valentine. Yes, working on four projects simultaneously is a spectacularly bad idea.
