Absolutely wonderful poem. It kinda reminds me of a girl I was dating some
time ago..we're supposed to be getting back together, but things are
getting screwed up again. I read this after a long time of not having seen
it and it made me cry. I love it.

I think this poem of Plath's is pretty out there and can fully touch you in
one reading. it easily sticks to anyone who reads it. Especially those
who've had someone they can only daydream about... i love it, it's my
favorite. :)

I'm thrilled to see that so many have commented on this poem. I love all of
Plath's work, but this poem always sticks out in my mind. The villanelle is
extremely hard to write, but the great Plath was no match for it's iambics.
Rest in peace, Sylvia.

Sylvia's Poetry is great especially this particular poem .
i think "Mad Girl's Love Song " is dedictaed to her husband Ted Hughes
because he cheated on her while she loved him, she talks about the distance
between them , " I should have loved a thunderbird instead ,At least when
spring comes it will roar back again" .

The confessional poetry reveals to the reader the poets mental state .
