    Dear Rani Turton,

    Plath´s poems are so dense to me... maybe because I´m her namesake and might sometimes carry similar feelings of sadness and desperation...Well, as to your poems, they´re excellent! Congrats from Brazil,

    Yours in Poetry,

Best Poem of Rani Turton


Silence. Long moments that stretch into years.
Restrained words, sometimes gaps where names should be.
Words, prayers, songs, imagination inflamed by memory.

Emptiness, loneliness, the world, the void.
Look behind, look ahead, look straight ahead.
The world is indifferent to your pain.
The world is indifferent to your sighs.
Nothing will ever be the same;
Nothing will ever matter again.
Will anything ever matter again?

Absences. Like a long lonely lane in an eastern land
With closed doors against the afternoon heat
Questions that taunt ...
