Yes, Yumna, she definitely could not contain her life...it simply got away from her too often and out of her control...
like an overgrown weed, which made the flower that was her heart choke until there was no more breath.
you capture that in these few words,
j.

You are most welcome..
Everyone is comparing your message to Plath & all good comments which I enjoy . . . but I see your message in more immediate terms, relating it to my own life. One hallmark of being bipolar is grinding on everything in one's mind. This is the most original & lyrical I've ever seen it described, how it is when your mind won't let go of a torturous thing (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

You express such a trapped and uncontainable sadness in this piece. Much like Plath who could never feel in control as she suffered 'coersive control'.

Thank you so much for reading and appreciating, John.
Dr Y, I really think this little bit of brevity is wonderful. I have read much about Sylvia and I believe you have captured those dark feelings she must have had with her life when it was out of control. The use of weeds to describe it is very clever.

Thank you so much for reading and your words here, David. Appreciated.
A great take on Plath's quote. Solemn and desperate interior musing, pulling the weeds by the root is the only way to get rid of them without poisoning your heart, but the job seems insurmountable. Loved this Doc!!!
