Seeing how April is National Poetry Month, I wanted to share a few of my favorite poems these few weeks. I like Anne Sexton so much because her poetry is so raw. She put it all out there and there is something to be said for that. Her poems are passionate and intense.
A snippet from a favorite of hers called “Killing the Love”.
I am the love killer,
I am murdering the music we thought so special,
that blazed between us, over and over.
I am murdering me, where I kneeled at your kiss.
I am pushing knives through the hands
that created two into one.
Our hands do not bleed at this,
they lie still in their dishonor….

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day.
