I believe that anne sexton really did love her husband, but knew that it
was over. A great example of a song that i think fits well with this
Somewhere Over the Rainbow. She believes that there is something better
without him but when she gets there, there is nothing

The poem “Killing The love”, by Anne Sexton, shows an example of how love
is dead. This poem makes perfect sense to me. Whenever you end a
relationship you kill that entity that was the joint version of you and
someone else. As far as someone not accepting blame, I don't think this
poem tosses blame on anyone, except perhaps the writer herself. She states
clearly that she is the love killer, and does not give reasons which could
be interpreted as blame on the other person as to why she is killing love.
Its more about the death of love. The sympathy and loss and continuation of
life that go along with it.

This poem makes perfect sense to me. Whenever you end a relationship you
kill that entity that was the joint version of you and someone else. You
can call that "third person" love.

on anyone, except perhaps the writer herself. She states clearly that she
is the love killer, and doesn't give reasons (which could be interpreted as

I find it interesting that those who speak of experiencing the killing of
love seem to place the responsibility on others in thier lives and take
none of their own.

I am new to Anns poetry. It saddens me deeply because my husband is trying
with all his might to Kill The Love he has for himself and everyone and
thing around him. He is manic depressive and uses her poetry to enable
himself to fall deeper so he can kill himself as well. It saddens me
because his children will be without a father someday and this sight is
only allowing him to gather information to make it worse not better. I
feel for Ann I understand her dispare as I am a outsider looking in and
watching a beautiful person Kill The Love so you can Kill himself.

I think it's important for people in relationships to read and "get" this
poem so that they might become aware of ways in which they're killing the
love, perhaps even unintentionally.
As for Felicity she was only trying to say that suicide is not a solution,
and I don't get the idea she meant "stupid" in an insulting manner. Cut her
some slack; she's thirteen. Also, she did stimulate discussion of the poem
so give her that :)

Sexton gave me good reason to say good bye to all and everything.
