In memory of Sylvia Plath. For all women. Against gender-neutralism.

In memory of Sylvia Plath.  
(by me)

For all women.  Against gender-neutralism.

YOU were
my sun and shield.

(I have only begun...
and I am crying already.

And writhing.)


my sun and shield.

But not so completely glorious,
or just differently?

Maybe differently.
A mistake in the fabric,
incorporated, made beautiful.

"You adore him far too much,"
my sister said, early on.

We have known what faith and love is,
and still a knife pierces my heart.

There is only one way out.

"I will greatly multiply your pain in childbirth.  In pain you will bring forth children;  yet your desire will be for your husband and he will rule over you."  (The Lord.)
