Michael Kelahan Quotes: Oh My Dearest Love Why Are Our Pleasures

Oh! My Dearest Love, Why Are Our Pleasures So Short And So Interrupted? How Long Is This To Last?
Know You, My Best Mary, That I Feel Myself, In Your Absence, Almost Degraded To The Level Of The Vulgar And Impure. I Feel Their Vacant, Stiff Eyeballs Fixed Upon Me, Until I Seem To Have Been Infected With Their Loathsome Meaning
to Inhale A Sickness That Subdues Me To Languor. Oh! Those Redeeming Eyes Of Mary, That They Might Beam Upon Me Before I Sleep! Praise My Forbearance
oh! Beloved One
that I Do Not Rashly Fly To You, And At Least Secure A Moment's Bliss. Wherefore Should I Delay; Do You Not Long To Meet Me? All That Is Exalted And Buoyant In My Nature Urges Me Towards You, Reproaches Me With The Cold Delay, Laughs At All Fear And Spurns To Dream Of Prudence. Why Am I Not With You?
