  • POEM: A Life Of Hell, Unspoken Words (Bipolar) by Amber Zenisek (1/16/2007 4:00:00 PM)

    It reminds me of my poem. I feel you; I see you in me. Who can we ever talk about if not ourselves?

    Keep expressing!

    Broken down and retributive

    Broken down and retributive,
    Uncontrollable in sterile ire,
    Unreflective dissipation, untold musings,
    Impotence at its zenith, a nadir.

    Unrepentant, his demeanor, as a shield,
    That special brand of punishment,
    As he sails the vast seas of apathy
    Aptly sought, well hidden, yet, in cowardice.

    Faces he not what delivers him at last,
    His essential wickedness, exemplified,
    A sardonic rictus, forever imprinted
    Across the infernal regions of his mind.

  • POEM: A Life Of Hell, Unspoken Words (Bipolar) by Amber Zenisek (6/5/2004 12:07:00 AM)

    What can you say about Anne Sexton? Consumed, super sensitivity. Bright as the Sun.
    consummedsome facts: 1928—74, American poet, b. Newton, Mass. Educated at Garland Junior College and at Radcliffe, she worked briefly as a fashion model in Boston. Her 'confessional poetry' is highly autobiographical, marked by irony and lyrical emotion, and often dwells on themes of madness and death. Her first work, To Bedlam and Part Way Back (1960) , deals in personal terms with her efforts to retain her sanity. Other works include Selected Poems (1964,1988) , Live or Die (1966; Pulitzer Prize) , Love Poems (1969) , Transformations (1971) , The Book of Folly (1973) , The Death Notebooks (1974) , the posthumous The Awful Rowing Toward God (1975) , and The Complete Poems (1981) . Sexton died at 46, an apparent suicide. Her daughter, Linda Gray Sexton, is a novelist and essayist.
