It's been quite some time since I last posted on my blog. I left because the entire appeal of blogging had disappeared. I just didn't feel like blogging anymore. I ended up repeating myself again and again, once here with a review, then on Goodreads and then amazon. Plus, I started reviewing for Dark Faerie Tales and I just didn't think I had the time to maintain my own blog too. 

So why have I come back now, you ask? Well, I realised that I don't read any poems so I randomly started researching short poems (baby steps!) and I came across a beautiful poem that I just had to share... 
By Christina Rossetti

Remember me when I am gone away,

Gone far away into the silent land;

When you can no more hold me by the hand,

Nor I half turn to go, yet turning stay.

Remember me when no more day by day

You tell me of our future that you plann'd:

Only remember me; you understand

It will be late to counsel then or pray.

Yet if you should forget me for a while

And afterwards remember, do not grieve:

For if the darkness and corruption leave

A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,

Better by far you should forget and smile

Than that you should remember and be sad.
