Sexton is expressing the anguish which I think most passionate people feel,
over the raw bruising nature of the world. The essence of poetry, I think,
is honesty, and that is one of the most difficult things for any writer to
achieve. I think Sexton has done so in this poem, which makes it a rare,
powerful, and difficult work.

In her naivete, Krystal asks an interesting question: "Are words worth
pain?" I think the answer is "Yes;" indeed, words are the most valuable
things we have, because words are what distinguishes us from all other
living things. But the question is really backwards, because the pain
comes first; the words are a response to the pain, and indeed may be all
that makes the pain bearable.

Although I´m not the greatest fan of autobiographical literature, there´s
something alluring in this poem. Sexton writes truthfully, I guess. To the
ones that question the worth of writing: it is argued that Sexton lived
longer because of her writing. The pain comes first. Then the poetry.

You took the words right out of my mouth Eryka! Poetry is about what comes
from the deepest part of your inner soul, mind, mentality, and HEART! It
doesn't have to be your run of the mil middleschool creative writting
class........................Yet another beautiful poem written by my new
favorite poet
