Untitled (when plath meets byron)

Spread the love

Every time I close my eyes the world
comes to a dead end. I am lost in the
darkness. Can you hear me? Perhaps
I imagined you inside my head.

She walks, a form of loveliness, akin to
moon at night. I can hear her desperate
plea. ‘Come save me’ Oh passion sways
despair. We reunite.

Fire and water. Such is their verse, and
though they seemed worlds apart, there
is a hint of common ground. Speculate,
what if they had met!

  1. Lovely interpretation of the prompt, Sanaa. Beautiful words and pleasing aesthetic. I also suspect hint of common ground between these two.

    Could Poe be the moody lover to rekindle Plath’s faith in life, as well as her heart? You’ve made a good case for it. I hope it works out with those crazy kids.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Me too!❀ thank you so much, Rommy πŸ™‚ so glad you liked it❀

  4. There is a hint of common ground, indeed! And I completely agree with what Kim suggests: seeing romance (everywhere) is certainly a gift you have.

    Ah, yes, she walks in beauty like the night – I caught that allusion instantly. This has quite a dreamy and romantic tone. Two lost poetic souls: it would have been an interesting meeting.
