Poem

I Am Not Yours By Sara Teasdale

I Am Not Yours By Sara Teasdale

I am not yours, not lost in you,
Not lost, although I long to be
Lost as a candlelit at noon,
Lost as a snowflake in the sea.

You love me, and I find you still
A spirit beautiful and bright,
Yet I am I, who long to be
Lost as a light is lost in light.

Oh plunge me deep in love—put out
My senses, leave me deaf and blind,
Swept by the tempest of your love,
A taper in a rushing wind.

― By Sara Teasdale
