I Dreamt of Hell

sylvia-plath

By: Spencer DiSparti

Red in tooth and claw,

I dug their graves one by one

Leaving none.

What have I done?

Haunted were her eyes

That spoke of bitter times.

I prayed she would come back to me,

But that was just a lie.

I dreamt of Hell

Night after night,

For I have seen

The devil take

My wife from me.

My life forever owned

By death’s black deed.

Worms writhe beneath,

As I wept upon her stone;

A root that goes so deep.
