Three darts to the left

Three darts to the left

Three darts to the left
might have used arrows instead
but it's about the pain
not the death
and life, it's such a wonderful mess
three strokes from dawn
the true test
to dream, to rise
to do it all again
thank you, God
I feel so
f*****g
blessed

ouch... poor papaya:( you are not a dart board! what horrible repeat beat of phonograph skipping wretched moment was on replay that morning:( Oh how I know that feeling my sister poetess! The worst is when the room starts to spinning and you cant get on your feet cause you can't figure out what direction gravity is in. I will draw some directional arrows on your ceiling to give you a sense of bearing next time:) here's to a more pleasant rise next time:)

Is this about love, too? Or what are the darts you're talking about?

It's about love and pain.
I don't ever recall Plath using swearables, but perhaps she just never felt as blessed as you. I thought of her at the ending, maybe saying gosh darn dandy, dahling... (Apologies, I'm currently reading her Johnny Panic book and think I heard her laugh at the last line... Like my inny heady idea of how she'd laugh)
I reckon darts make more sense than bows too, as I picture that little cupid s**t bunching up his fists and punching them at us, instead of that cherub like mask of innocence he hides behind.
Ps... I reckon you laughed at the end too, in a "if you can't beat 'em" kinda way.

Yup. People falling down escalators is in my favourites, and baby animals on ice too 😀
Geeze...ouch...that hurt me. The wonderful, sarcastic voice really comes through in the end. This has the feel of really pissed off, but still strong enough to fight back.

Arrows can kill too if they are aimed with precision. Felt the pain here, early pre dawn insomnia. Nicely expressed Ana, and certainly felt.

You are welcome. Hi Ana.
As we pluck the strings on our Quitar, we feel the pain of Notes as they resonate in our psyche of forbidden moments. truly, Pat

Good morning Pat, thank you for this comment!
What if I said... even a clever take doesn't matter....


I'm full of s**t either way, so, don't fret... none of this matters.

It only hurts if you let it. We make our own meaning. Like it or not... we control were this goes.
