i'm a plath person

anonymous asked:

I feel like it was kind of shitty of that person to leave that thing abt sylvia plath in ur inbox with zero sources and then tell u that theyre unfollowing, as if it was widely known information like...... idk that just felt unnecessary and rude

i’m glad they told me about it i guess but i’m also kind of left like. where do i go from here

..All day I feel its soft, feathery turnings, its malignity.
Clouds pass and disperse.
Are those the faces of love, those pale irretrievables?
Is it for such I agitate my heart?

I am incapable of more knowledge.
What is this, this face
So murderous in its strangle of branches? -

Its snaky acids kiss.
It petrifies the will. These are the isolate, slow faults
That kill, that kill, that kill.
