This poem makes you think about the human nature. People's obsession and
how these obsessions afect them when they loose their touch with reality.
The alliteration and the simile in the poem help develop the theme which is
the subconscious of desturbed individuals. It is very relevant for the
"Roaring Twenties." it was a time when society had to deal with lost mindes
and lost riches. But then you have to wonder about the poets on life and
how that might have impacted the writing of the poem and one would be
tempted to think about her life choices.

I think I want to marry this poem. Lolz, but it has many different meanings
to anyone who would take the time to read it, I guess. To me it just feels
like that girl has so many problems but can't solve them, so other people
try to do that for her, but she keeps on rejecting them.
