Bridges to forgiving lands
are hooked onto the edges
of Plath's suicidal words.

She kills you softly with
her stories, and buries you
beneath the crests of her
sadness. She is not
merciful, or understanding,
she simply wants you there.

She wants you to lie
beneath the murderous kisses
of her inked mysteries, and
understand her pain
as well as she knew it
herself.

Okay so this poem was just ravishing! I love Sylvia Plath too, and I actually have a blog where I document letters to Miss. Plath. letterstoplath.wordpress.com/category/uncategorized/prose/ I would LOVE if you send in your writings too, since you understand her so well! Looking forward to reading what other fans have to say to her!
