i don't think this is a beautiful love poem at all. i think she is
depressed because her lover has left, and she is watching her world fall
into chaos. she can't tell the difference between her dreams and reality,
and any trust she may have had in religion is gone. Without religion or a
man to rule things, she's left to herself, which makes her feel paranoid.
it's tragic.

I read the Bell Jar, loved it, and needed more of Sylvia Plath. When I read
this one, I feel instantly in love with it, because to me it seems of a
perfect man and wondering if its true. It is hanging in my locker, and will
go with me everywhere in life.

I love this poem. I love how instead of writing a "mushy" love poem, she
added sort of a twist. Don't get me wrong, I love "mushy" love poems every
now and then. I just love this poem, and I love Sylvia Plath. She's just
below Edgar Allen Poe on my list.
