Sorrow and Sadness (3)

Nor wherefore, friendship's forms forgetting,
He careless left, and cool withdrew;
Nor spoke of grief, nor fond regretting,
Nor ev'n one glance of comfort threw.
-- Charlotte Brontë. Frances.

I have outlasted all desire,
My dreams and I have grown apart;
My grief alone is left entire,
The gleanings of an empty heart.
-- Alexander Pushkin. I Have Outlasted All Desire.
