Looking for a name

Mad Girl's Love Poem has become my favorite poem:

Mad Girl's Love Song


By Sylvia Plath

"I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;

I lift my lids and all is born again.

(I think I made you up inside my head.)





The stars go waltzing out in blue and red,

And arbitrary blackness gallops in:

I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.





I dreamed that you bewitched me into bed

And sung me moon-struck, kissed me quite insane.

(I think I made you up inside my head.)





God topples from the sky, hell's fires fade:

Exit seraphim and Satan's men:

I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.





I fancied you'd return the way you said,

But I grow old and I forget your name.

(I think I made you up inside my head.)





I should have loved a thunderbird instead;

At least when spring comes they roar back again.

I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

(I think I made you up inside my head.)"



So, having the week I have been having, I made up my own little poem in homage, but I don't know what to call it:


I shut my eyes and I feel


your warm embrace, it reels

and suddenly I feel the bed,

I made you up inside my head.



I open my eyes and I see

and suddenly you call me,

your lovely blue eyes led,

I made you up inside my head.



Love is in my eyes,

blinded, I cry,

in you evil is bred;

I made you up inside my head.



Exit Cupid and Satan enters,

ravens fly around the center--

I wish I know what was said,

I made you up inside my head.





Red and orange waltz in;

blackness around me spins

and suddenly I drop dead,

I wish I made you up inside my head.

  1. If it's a poem in homage to this other poet's work, then perhaps it'd be good to title it similarly to how the other poem is titled, which is my first thought.

    Many people name their poems after the most memorable line. What do you find most memorable about this?

    Either that, something reminiscent of how Ms Plath titled hers, Untitled, or... well, use your imagination! ^_^ I'd mostly recommend against something football-themed, unless you were trying to imagine an embrace with one of your favourite Packers players while writing.

    I'm probably not bringing back all the books I just got out from the library at once, since I hurt from the labour of bringing them all home D: I can't take out more than maybe five at a time or else I'm going to explode from muscle-abuse. >_<;;; Getting out 20 at once and lugging them home on the 92 with two notebooks and my personal effects is a BAD IDEA, mark my words.

    1. lol. I bet. I am planning on taking a different route this coming school year. It depends on how things go.

    2. Not 92, or not bus?

      I can't even consider clearly what I'm doing in the fall yet - I still have to accompany my father back to "the Old Country" - i.e. western Pennsylvania, and my mother to Massachusetts!

    3. Not 92. I am going to drop my 8am most likely. I want to work. I need the money.

    4. Is your neighbour taking you all the time?
      Would you be working rather than taking the 8am class?
      What had been your planned 8am?

    5. My neighbor graduated. :( I'd be taking the trolley from Bridgeport to 69th St. then 69th St. to West Chester using the 104. I'm hoping it works out.

      My 8am would be technical writing. I dropped that class last year, I think I am going to drop it again and work in place of it.

    6. That's a hazard of having a "normal" life! My condolences.
      How can you get to Bridgeport? Is that close to KoP? *wikivestigates*
      I've never been to the 69th St. Terminal, only heard of it. (Nor ridden 104 for that matter, only observed the Other Bus)

      Is technical writing a very necessary class in your degree program?

      Whether it works out or not, you're still my friend! ^_^ *GLOMP*

    7. Yeah, I can take bus 99 that runs to Bridgeport. :)

      Not really, I just need any type of writing courses.

      ::hug:: YAY! ^_^
