Lisa,

Thanks for the explanation and I am so sorry for all the pain you’ve endured.

This poem is what Ted Koozer refers to as a “work that is too close to you.”

Poems of great personal pain are sometimes difficult to word.

You might try reading Edgar Allan Poe’s work….like Annabelle Lee….for inspiration.

Plath and Gluck also write some great pain poetry.

Deepest admiration,
t 🙂
