I, Sylvia

When I died,
I watched the moon fall
With the evening tide.
Away it slipped
To the other side -
Leaving the blood in my veins
Pale turquoise.

I walked with knowledge
On sacred ground,
Wherever I looked
There was nothing,
Nobody around;
Stars sang to me
That night,
I was alive

But I wasn't really,
When I died.
The universe rippled,
It cracked
I cried.
There is no reality
For creation to survive.

It wasn't that great,
Watching me die-
A Noir film in colour,
A travesty,
A crime.
Still I am just broken glass
For you to cut dreams on,
And you are all bars
On my cage.
Inspired by Sylvia Plath

So an awesome choice of name there ;) And it's nice to hear someone else reads her stuff, I don't know anyone who does to know who I'm on about in real life sadly...

The Plath influence is clear to see, in your form and in the rhythm, this is by no means a bad thing. She is a great writer that you could do well to read more of. I like this piece Katie and you've every right to be proud of it. Well done.

Good to see you can see some ties there Dom, thank you very much for saying so. And yes, recently I've been getting more into her work I must say; as well as the story of her personal life and such because it's quite interesting. Thank you :thanks:
