Saturday's Poetry Time; Mad Girl's Love Song

Mad Girl's Love Song
by Sylvia Plath 

I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;
I lift my lids and all is born again.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

The stars go waltzing out in blue and red,
And arbitrary blackness gallops in:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I dreamed that you bewitched me into bed
And sung me moon-struck, kissed me quite insane.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

God topples from the sky, hell's fires fade:
Exit seraphim and Satan's men:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I fancied you'd return the way you said,
But I grow old and I forget your name.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

I should have loved a thunderbird instead;
At least when spring comes they roar back again.
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It's simple,
yet effective. A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you've
done a excellent job with this. Also, the blog loads super fast
for me on Firefox. Exceptional Blog!

I leave a response whenever I appreciate a article on a website or if I have something to
valuable to contribute to the discussion. It is a result
of the passion communicated in the article I browsed.
And after this post "Saturday's Poetry Time; Mad Girl's Love Song".
I was excited enough to post a thought :-) I do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or does it seem like some of the responses look like left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on other online social sites, I would like to keep up with you. Could you make a list the complete urls of your shared pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
