…how much you loved me and how I broke your heart. I suffer for it still today even though years have passed. I love you more than ever and can’t move on.
John Keats to Fanny Brawne
I cannot exist without you – I am forgetful of every thing but seeing you again – my life seems to stop there – I see no further. You have absorb’d me.
I have a sensation at the present moment as though I were dissolving ….I have been astonished that men could die martyrs for religion – I have shudder’d at it – I shudder no more – I could be martyr’d for my religion – love is my religion – I could die for that – I could die for you.
My creed is love and you are its only tenet – you have ravish’d me away by a power I cannot resist.
