Had this hope.
this one man. melted. to my mind.
the one to mend. stitch me back. a novel Mary Shelley.
Upon recommendation. Due course. And careful consideration.
i succumbed. to hope. a novel idea.



 *sculpture of Mary Shelley and Percy Shelley.


I fear thy kisses, gentle maiden;                                                                                             Thou needest not fear mine;

My spirit is too deeply laden
Ever to burthen thine.

I fear thy mien, thy tones, thy motion;
Thou needest not fear mine;
Innocent is the heart’s devotion
With which I worship thine.

~ Percy Bysshe Shelley, I Fear Thy Kisses
