I CAN NOT EXIST WITHOUT YOU: Poetry of John Keats (1785/1821)

I CAN NOT EXIST WITHOUT YOU

JOHN.1.1

I can not exist without you.

I forget about everything but to see you:

my life seems to stop there,

I look ahead.

You’ve me absorbed.

  Right now I have a feeling as to dissolve:

 I would be very sad without hope to see you soon.

 I’d be afraid to break away from you.

You have stolen away the ‘soul with a power that I can not resist;

 and yet I could resist till I saw you;

 and also since I have seen I tried often to reason

 against the reasons for my love.

 Now I am no longer capable.

 It would be too great a penalty.

 My love is selfish.

 I can not breathe without you.

(John Keats)
