Poem of the Day
Renting Emily Dickinson's Bedroom by the Hour
I don’t want to do anything.Taken from 'The Tragic Death of Eleanor Marx'...
I just want to watch.
I want to see what she saw.
I don’t want to touch
or be touched;
I want a different kind of pain.
If I can get it once
I won’t come back again.
