Ashley Seymour Comments

Phillip Ellis 22 October 2008

Dear Ashley, thank you for their poems. I appreciate their emotional honesty and directness, and their raw, visceral response and struggle with technique. To what extent have you looked at poems that scan, but which either forego rhyme, or use it more subtly than you have now? I am very interested in how poets write, as well as what they write, since we tend to develop both in varying degrees as we develop as a poet. If you would like more detailed comments, I would be happy to leave messages for you. It would be a pleasure, and I would love to see more of your work. yours Phillip Ellis

The Best Poem Of Ashley Seymour

Self Hatred

I hate myself, I want to bleed,
I cry at night, longing to be freed.

I think of death, there’s so much pain,
I’m losing myself, I’m going insane.

I cut myself, because I binged and purged,
I do it every day, whenever I get the urge.

I feel so ugly, and so fat,
Life seems pointless, from where I’m at.

I’m sick of living with all this crap, I feel like I’m suffocating, stuck in a trap.

Where no one can hear my painful screams, they don’t know about my horrible dreams.

I feel like a cow, god I need help, I know that now.

I know you probably don’t understand, but if you can please give me your hand.

And at night when I’m all alone, call me and tell me things'll be ok on the phone.

I know I don’t have much to give, but please, give me a reason to live.
