I am not yours, not lost in you,
Not lost, although I long to be
Lost as a candle lit 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.

i think this poem is about shrek. shrek i love, shrek is life, i say. i often dream of shrek filling me up with his love in my buttonhole, but my dad doesn't like shrek.
shrek is love, shrek is life.

I feel this person longs to be in love, to commit wholly,but cannot. "Oh plunge me deep in love".

I think this poem was written for me. I am in this exact situation with my mom. I love her; I want to be with her romantically, but that is not socially acceptable. I find myself holding back my love for her. I watch her kiss my dad, and I honestly wish that were me that she is kissing. I hate my dad.

My analysis of this poem is that it's about someone who is in love with a person with whom they are unable to be with. For instance, it could be about a man or woman who is married but in love with another. They know there is hope that someday they will be together, just not now, so they dream of who it will be when the time is right. There is love, will always be love, and someday they can act upon their love.

I think this so often reflects my relationship with Jesus. I long to be lost in him but find myself holding things back. To be fully his I have to give myself to him. He won't take me against my will. To give myself to Jesus I need to trust him. To trust someone completely... am I willing?

I find it hard to trust that people won't leave me. It's not so much trusting them but trusting myself. I don't want to get hurt anymore and so don't let myself trust people. My head and heart are saying two different things.

There are some people I do trust, some I'd trust with my life, some I know would never tell anyone what I might tell them. But I get scared they'll leave me. So I don't dare to love them. "It's not you, it's me..." no really...

I find myself thinking Jesus will always be annoyed with me. I think people always are and therefore my Lord too. I need to trust people not to hurt me but before I can do that I need to trust Jesus to protect me.

Hmm... I don't really know where I'm going with this, it just kind of... flowed. But what I'm getting at is that this poem made sense to me. I hope it makes sense to you, even if I don't. Bear with me, I might get there one day! :o)
