National Poetry Month Day 24 *WARNING: possible triggers

So I’ve got 45 minutes until the day is over, and I’m sneaking this little poem in just in the nick of time! Today’s been another horrible day, but I won’t bore you with details.

National Poetry Month Days 18&19

Again? Sorry, but this workload is killing me! The funny thing is that most of my professors have given me free reign on my papers and projects, so this really shouldn’t be as bad as it seems.

“Book that should be on high school/college required reading lists.” Just one? 😛 I’ve mentioned The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath yesterday as one of my favorite works by her. I was a huge fan of her poetry and I decided that I wanted to check out her book. I didn’t really know what it was […]
