Quote By Heart #blogging101

This quote of part of Blake’s poem has haunted me for years – not least because the first time I ever heard it it resonated with overtures of my own psyche – back then anyway….

Seeks out thy heart in its crimson joy

And with his dark secret Love does thy Life destroy ….

It may seem unhealthy to look back but I feel far lighter of heart when I recognise how far I have finally come….
