       It was while watching 'Henry V' in Brit. Lit. that I became very fond of the name Kate. My name is Katie, but I've been called Kate ever so often. Writing this, I debated whether to change my name or not, even though I'd already told a few friends I was now Kate.

    Sadly, I don't know anyone named Henry. Perhaps I should.

    I would change my name to have you.
    It's only one letter,
    and I've been called by it before.
    But it's the letter that
    by itself
    could represent selfishness, self doubt,
    and I could live without it...
    If I tried not to cry.
    Still, I would give it up to have you.
    forget myself, and cry at the loss of my heart and my title,
    only to have you and hope you would
    wipe away disdainful tears.
    And yet, would you remember me?
    Would you hold my face in your mind
    with the old name,
    and never know who I am?
    Does my name hold together my
    personality, wit, mood, or my heart?
    I would change my name to have you,
    but would I still have me?

      The two last lines really brought the poem home, alot of emotion came through in this and i enjoyed reading it. Its always a huge question to be faced with, if its worth giving up a part of yourself for someone else, and you expressed it really well :)

    Good job

      That's very thoughtful of you. I really enjoyed this one just like all of your other ones.

    Would you hold my face in your mind
    with the old name,
    and never know who I am?

    I really liked this part. Thanks for writing it. I love it.

      Oooh, very nice! I love words expressing these emotions, these troubles. It's so hard, deciding whether the risks are worth the end...especially when it comes to love. This has some wonderful line that make you wonder, I especially enjoyed the last 2 lines. Very nice job.
