Sylvia Plath - Jilted

My thoughts are crabbed and sallow,
My tears like vinegar,
Or the bitter blinking yellow
Of an acetic star.

Tonight the caustic wind, love,
Gossips late and soon,
And I wear the wry-faced pucker of
The sour lemon moon.

While like an early summer plum,
Puny, green, and tart,
Droops upon its wizened stem
My lean, unripened heart.

A00VM3 You could certainly see your expertise in the work you write. The arena hopes for even more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. Always follow your heart.

Depressing stuff. Waste of time.

This poem seems to me a specimen of pessimism and dejectedness. Plath had never had a proper or a beautiful relation either with her father or later on with her husband. This poem actually stands for the same state of Plath.
