Sylvia And Assia

Sylvia And Assia

A Poem by Ethan
"

A poem concerning the deaths of Sylvia Plath and Assia Wevill.

"
"With a Meinkampf look and a love of the screw,"
That man set his red, wicked eye upon you.
Two girls, one German, and one firmly not,
In the same trap were both easily caught.
One looked for strong men to fill her young bed.
One sought a chest on which to lay her head.

Yet she locked the door with the gas turned on
And the other died with child, left by devil-spawn.
Both alone, both confused,
Both beautiful, both used,
And both dead,
Murdered by the b*****d they called Ted.

I didnt know about this. Thanks for the knowledge...This is...just...tragic. Yeah, sure this was a nice theme to write on. The flow was really good with an excellent rhyme scheme. Short but clearly gives us an impression of your scornful feelings for this terrible incident. Powerful write. Well done!

I am not sure if blaming Ted for death of his wife is completely correct. She suffering from so many mental issues , her life experience were dreadful and full of pain. Her writing was very brave she get deep look to inner fears. This can be also trigger for her death. She finished Ariel very promising writing all looks bright but there was something behind . Life will never follow logic. When I read it Crystal Bell. There was lot of layers, humor tragedy and even some victory.

Eerie and beautiful. If you were trying to convey a sense of sadness, then you definitely succeeded.

Glad to know:)
I don't know who these people are, but this poem is really good. It shows tragedy, a bit of love, and it's emotional as well. but the thing I loved the most about this piece is that the rhyming is just perfect! You know how to rhyme things, you are really good at it. Keep rhyming and writing!!
