She walked into the room, and my heart stopped. Her wings hung from her shoulders like great downy blankets, blankets that I knew I could wrap myself in for years. She wore a white robe, cinched at her waist by a golden rope that just begged to be loosed. "C'mon, ya big lug," she said, with a smile and a wink that promised eternal delights, "time to go. They want to talk to you upstairs." She didn't have to twist my arm. I grabbed for my hat, and her hand reached out and touched mine. All the pain went away.

Yeah, time to go. So we went.

Just ran across this from the notebooks of poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge:

"The still rising Desire baffling the bitter Experience, the bitter Experience still following the gratified Desire."

One wonders what was on his mind at the time. [Read entire topic]
