The Bell Jar (Aft. Sylvia Plath) Poem by LeeAnn Azzopardi

The Bell Jar (Aft. Sylvia Plath)

Rating: 5.0


You look at me, as though,
I am a butterfly in a Bell Jar
I have noticed you staring through
Yr window, watching me getting my mail
With my little dog
You've been doing this for years
But now, you are making me paranoid
Sometimes, I see you with camera
And see a flash in the corner of my eye
Are you taking pictures of me picking up sh*t?
And posting them online?
I bet you are
Please stop examining me
I have done nothing wrong
Knowing you are in love with yr lawn
I'll try not to let my dog do his business on it
But I feel like a butterfly in the Bell Jar
A person without peace

Sylvial Plath was such a great poet! And here you are, LeeAnn following in her footsteps. Love the diversity of your poetry!

Brilliant, LeeAnn. You've captured Sylvia in that Bell Jar.

We are witnessing the rebirth of Sylvia Plath in the person of LeeAnn Azzopardi. I actually have a copy of her book The Bell Jar somewhere in my house. I read part of it once. Now I will have to find it and read the rest of it.

I usually catch my careless grammar errors before submitting a poem, or afterwards, and edit them. I read other comments. I thought Slyvia Plath was a singer; was she also a poet and author of a novel? bri : )

Why use 'Aft.' (for After?) and 'Yr' [sic] (for Your?) instead of spelling out words? And: 'You're been doing this for years.'. Use 'You've'. '

...but if you click 'Download image of this poem' (below poem) , you can see the whole poem. You DO see the nasty 'black box', don't you? ? : ( bri

'You look at me, as though, I am a butterfly in a Bell Jar' are the first two lines. The 'black box' below title hides those lines, but...
