the line "i think i made you up inside my head" really makes allot of
sense. my understanding of that is, perhaps she was in love with the idea
of some one, they were ultimately a facade, and they dissappointed her in
the end. she shows an insane amount of relevance to todays socity of women,
for a woman of the 50's.

Don't you think that the title, "Mad Girl's Love Song" could have two
different meanings? Mad- angry and mad- crazy. Hmm. Thanks for that info
Sucheta, it really made me think!

the first few lines of this peom are so beautiful, i cried the second i
read them for the first time.
i think she was a beautiful mind and a great voice for those who are
depressed in a world where depression is carried such a stigma.

Its not neccisarially about the first love, just how it feels when one
first falls in love with someone else. You wonder if it can be true, and
question constantly if this is real. This poem, I belive, focuses more on
unrequited love since she talks of the way he didn't return, and didn't do
as she had hoped. I like the poem, and although not my favorite work of
hers, its very very well done and probably the best is terms of style out
of all her work.
