I made you up inside my head.

Sylvia Plath and Pablo Neruda poems

The only Sylvia Plath’s poem, Mad Girl’s Love Song:
“I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;
I lift my lids and all is born again.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

The stars go waltzing out in blue and red,
And arbitrary blackness gallops in:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.
I dreamed that you bewitched me into bed
And sung me moon-struck, kissed me quite insane.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)
God topples from the sky, hell’s fires fade:
Exit seraphim and Satan’s men:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.
I fancied you’d return the way you said,
But I grow old and I forget your name.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

Pablo Neruda, 

“Your Laughter”

“…Laugh at the night,
at the day, at the moon,
laugh at the twisted
streets of the island,

laugh at this clumsy
boy who loves you,
but when I open
my eyes and close them,

when my steps go,
when my steps return,
deny me bread, air,
light, spring,

but never your laughter
for I would die.”
