OOTD: Somewhere I Have Never Traveled

I’m taking a break today from creative writing. There are days when words come effortlessly and my fingers can barely keep up with the rush of ideas, but there are days too when I end up just staring at the screen because nothing comes out. This day is theΒ latter. I’ve run out of inspiration I guess or I’m just too tired to think. πŸ™‚

Nevertheless, I’m trying to make it up to you for neglecting my blog for a week and I’m trying to post every day this week. I’ve barely missed Thursday but I guess this post will still count. It’s just past midnight anyway. πŸ˜›

For this look, I’m wearing the Blanc et Noir jacket that I’ve worn several times before. I just love it, that’s why. It just adds class to any look, I think. Besides, I have no problem about repeating the things I wear. How about you? Do you repeat clothes? πŸ™‚

Anyway, enough with the gab. I’ll leave you with photos and a beautiful poem from E.E. Cummings.

Somewhere I Have Never Traveled

somewhere i have never traveled, gladly beyond

any experience, your eyes have their silence:

in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,

or which i cannot touch because they are too near

sheer2

sheer

your slightest look easily will unclose me

though i have closed myself as fingers,

you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens

(touching skilfully,mysteriously) her first rose –

sheer3

sheer4

or if your wish be to close me, i and

my life will shut very beautifully, suddenly,

as when the heart of this flower imagines

the snow carefully everywhere descending;

sheer8

sheer6

nothing which we are to perceive in this worldΒ equals

the power of your intense fragility:whose texture

compels me with the color of its countries,

rendering death and forever with each breathing

sheer5

sheer9

(i do not know what it is about you that closes

and opens; only something in me understands

the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)

nobody,not even the rain,has such small hands

sheer7

Outfit Details:

  • Jacket from Blanc et Noir at SM Store
  • Sheer lace top – thrifted
  • Pencil Skirt from Charlotte Russe
  • Belt from Primo at SM Store
  • Shoes from Parisian

That poem is one of my absolute favorites together with “Variations on the Word Sleep” by Margaret Atwood. I would probably swoon if some guy read that to me with all sincerity. Actually, just thinking about it already makes me all giddy! *swoon*

Do you guys have a favorite poem? Let me know as I would be very happy to read them. πŸ˜‰

Talk to you all soon!

  1. I first heard it when I was in elementary, it was a background poem in the song ‘The First Time I Love Forever’ by Lisa Angelle in a tv series Beauty and the Beast with Linda Hamilton. I think you will also love the song πŸ™‚ Here’s a link I found in YouTube hope you like it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WI4UBk0ICGc. By the way I like your Dress, especially the details πŸ™‚

  2. I also have days where I stare blankly at the keyboard not knowing what to write and some days where my fingers just type the post I have to make and end up with a great one. Anyway, While there are times when you may have a hard time writing but when it comes to looking good, it’s seems effortless for you and you always stand out.
