This meme is based on Robert Browning’s “Porphyria’s Lover.” In the poem, Porphyria returns home during a storm and cozies up the house. She pulls her unnamed lover close and lies his head against her shoulder. Then her lover is overcome by a desire to have Porphyria forever and strangles her with her yellow hair.
