"Oh, indeed, it is true then! You could actually talk about me with her; and—and how could you have been fond of me when you had only seen me once?”

"I don’t know. Perhaps it was that I seemed to come upon light in the midst of my gloom. I told you the truth when I said I did not know why I thought of you before all others. Of course it was all a sort of dream, a dream amidst the horrors of reality. Afterwards I began to work. I did not intend to come back here for two or three years—"

The Rival - Silvia Plath

If the moon smiled, she would resemble you.
You leave the same impression
Of something beautiful, but annihilating.
Both of you are great light borrowers.
Her O-mouth grieves at the world; yours is unaffected,

And your first gift is making stone out of everything.
I wake to a mausoleum; you are here,
Ticking your fingers on the marble table, looking for cigarettes,
Spiteful as a woman, but not so nervous,
And dying to say something unanswerable.

The moon, too, abuses her subjects,
But in the daytime she is ridiculous.
Your dissatisfactions, on the other hand,
Arrive through the mailslot with loving regularity,
White and blank, expansive as carbon monoxide.

No day is safe from news of you,
Walking about in Africa maybe, but thinking of me

It’s one word, cover-to-cover
It’s an endless fuse
Chain-repeater never seems to get any smarter 

I’m always marking pages 
So that I don’t get confused
End up in a fight I never had any part of

Listen, naïve plaything
Coming over, clueless
Every time you call
An accident just waiting to happen
Still hasn’t failed out
How to take a fall

Make me a present
Make it something sweet
Small enough to go unnoticed and big enough to compete

What does a massive pass that keeps
Blocking up my street
Looking for a new contender to disassemble

Listen, naïve plaything
Coming over, clueless
Every time you call
An accident just waiting to happen
Still hasn’t failed out
How to take a fall
How to take a fall
How to take a fall

"Rain at Night" - Helen Hoyt

ARE you awake? Do you hear the rain? 
How rushingly it strikes upon the ground, 
And on the roof, and the wet window-panel 
Sometimes I think it is a comfortable sound, 
Making us feel how safe and snug we are: 
Closing us off in this dark, away from the dark outside. 
The rest of the world seems dim tonight, mysterious and far. 
Oh, there is no world left Only darkness, darkness stretching wide 
And full of the blind rain’s immeasurable fall! 

How nothing must we seem unto this ancient thing! 
How nothing unto the earth—and we so small! 
Oh, wake, wake!—do you not feel my hands cling? 
One day it will be raining as it rains tonight; the same wind blow— 
Raining and blowing on this house wherein we lie: but you and I— 
We shall not hear, we shall not ever know. 
O love, I had forgot that we must die.

"I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlour
drinking milk shakes cold and long
Smiling and waving and looking so fine
don’t think you knew you were in this song

And it was cold and it rained so I felt like an actor
And I thought of Ma and I wanted to get back there
Your face, your race, the way that you talk
I kiss you, you’re beautiful, I want you to walk”
