Yucky Love Stuff

So in response to Marisa's comment... The Jason Mraaz post wasn't a mushy love thing (I just think he's cool), but with Valentine's Day nearing close I guess love is on my mind a little. I made reservations at the restaurant HE and I first went to dinner at the night before V-day, which just happens to be exactly a year from the first time we went out (although ya'll know we haven't been together the whole time). So just to cement my current state of mushiness, below is one of my favorite poems by e.e. cummings titled i carry 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 fearno 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)

This may come back to haunt me but I've just seen In Her Shoes (a movie with Cameron Diaz in it; go figure) and you are the only person that had this poem on the web. I couldn't find it anywhere. In case you're wondering (and you probably are) I Carry My Heart was a part of the movie. Crazy, right? I love it though. I thank you a million times again and over. For I am only an anonymous.
