I wish you were the weakest sublime, yet instead you are the turbulent nature of the most sublime being. I try to see you without philosophy but you remain an inherent part of my being that attempts to make sense of the fullest feeling. And I can only do that with you.


  1. hmm...quite the conundrum the symbiotic nature...

  2. Interesting...I agree with Brian's comment above! But is it really symbiotic if the recipient isn't satisfied?

    Very philosophical. I wish you could share with us your intention with this piece :-)

    Thanks as Always,

  3. Rania, I have been reading Kant's writings on the sublime, and it sparked something in me about how when feeling insecure, the object of your sublime affections can lead you to wishing they were a weak sublime, as a way of protecting yourself.

    It's a very interesting theory.


  4. Ahhh, fascinating theory!

    You've now inspired me to delve deeper into Kant's writing myself. Thanks!

    Are most of your poems/prose a reflection of your independent readings/studies? Whatever it is, great job :-)
