Default My name

"ladyintricate" is from an e. e. cummings poem which I will post for you. I have honestly been using this name online since I was in high-school (31 now!)

I love poetry in general and this name is great because it is pretty much NEVER taken by someone else.

Enjoy the poem!

if i have made,my lady,intricate
imperfect various things chiefly which wrong
your eyes(frailer than most deep dreams are frail)
songs less firm than your body's whitest song
upon my mind-if i have failed to snare
the glance too shy-if through my singing slips
the very skillful strangeness of your smile
the keen primeval silence of your hair
-let the world say "his most wise music stole
nothing from death"-
you only will create
(who are so perfectly alive)my shame:
lady through whose profound and fragile lips
the sweet small clumsy feet of April came
into the ragged meadow of my soul.
