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.

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 doesn't 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.
