Life in a Love
By Robert Browning


Escape me?

Never—

Beloved!

While I am I, and you are you,

So long as the world contains us both,

Me the loving and you the loth,

While the one eludes, must the other pursue.

My life is a fault at last, I fear:

It seems too much like a fate, indeed!

Though I do my best I shall scarce succeed.

But what if I fail of my purpose here?

It is but to keep the nerves at strain,

To dry one's eyes and laugh at a fall,

And baffled, get up to begin again,—

So the chase takes up one's life, that's all.

While, look but once from your farthest bound,

At me so deep in the dust and dark,

No sooner the old hope drops to ground

Than a new one, straight to the selfsame mark,

I shape me—

Ever

Removed!





Could anyone help me annotate this poem?

Annotate in what respect, and for what purpose?

It's for an english project that i'm doing,
ive started annotating it, i just want some feedback from other people.
And annotated in the sense of explaining certain lines and/or words within the poem and their meanings to the poem as a whole.
Basically just what the poem means and what each line means

While I am reading this, I can relate or I remember some thing in my past. You delivered the message emotionally.
