It's probably as love is. Everything is inside our heads.

This is, as with all of Sylvia Plath's poetry, spectacular. I love her
writing form and her work is so deep. I wish I could use it for my poetry
project, but unfortunately my teacher says there's too much "innuendo" in
it. It's such a shame really that such narrow-minded people are able to
even read poetry like this.

This poem is a villa nelle, which is one of the most difficult types of
poems to write. Plath wrote this while she was still in college, long
before she had anything published. In fact, I believe she won her trip to
New York to write for Mademoiselle magazine after submitting this poem to a
poetry contest.

The poetry she wrote in her early years isn't included in "The Collected
Poems" because she never had any of it published. Her "Collected Poems" is
just a collection of poetry from all of books of poetry she had published,
before and after her suicide, including "The Colossus," "Crossing the
Water," and "Ariel."

So, I was looking for some good poems to use in a poetry book for my
english class and I came upon this poem and all of the other comments
people wrote. Well the instant I read this poem I fell in love with it
because, although I'm only 16, I've already found my first love... just
luckily i found a good one and we're still together! To everyone who's had
their heart broke, keep your chin up, there's someone for everyone!

Being only 16 a felt i could really identify with the thoughts and feelings
Plath expressed. It is absolutely magical the way she uses words and
imagery. ***** 5 stars!!
