A Girl in Love with Silence

Linda M. Crate

i am the greatest tragedy
youŽll ever know
a flower
that didnŽt bloom
a snowflake burned to death
before her birth
an unfinished sentence hanging
in the tongue of a
skeleton
all i ever wanted was to be included,
but i intimidated you all;
always left in a
room of my own i began to enjoy the quiet
now you try to pull me out of
my corner and make me do things with you
but i no longer wish to—
force me out of my corner and i will bite
a recluse spider
of your own devising
maybe if you loved me whilst i was searching
i wouldnŽt cling to solitude
as my lover.

Reader Feedback:
I'm not fond of poetry, but there are some I find enchanting. The above expresses what many of us Plain Janes felt as young people. I think Linda did an excellent job expressing how I once felt.
