    This poem is really good. I was introduced to this poem during the unit of poetry in english. I found it really amazing to see myself relating to such rhythm within this poem. As we analyzed this poem I found some similarities towards an emo, cutter type person but it is really good. (Report) Reply

    As with all of her work, she is utterly amazing in her ability to capture the essence of who she was and allow you to walk along side her on the journey of heartbreak in her own mind. She was a broken doll but beautifully so. In her death we saw the truth of her kind, the love she held in her heart and the fact she merely burned too bright for this realm that she blazed on into another. She is the epitomy of beautiful insanity, shattered perfection. (Report) Reply

    This is just so true it's almost unbearable to read. So brilliant but so sad that she knew all this and could express it. (Report) Reply

    'i have nine lives to live...'...how many times did she expect to get away with it? i wonder if it was the complete fading away she looked for or the revival from that darkness all over again... (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
