She didn't need him in her life! You wrote beautifully of her emergence!
Yellow wallpaper? No wonder she ran...strong and direct I like your styleChristine
I love the way you create Yin and Yang by narrowing down the form of your poem as her visions gain in freedom and power. :)
BKM, very powerful writing. Great symbolism.Cee
Standers we set for othersFor ourselves we don't botherwith others morals we get to excitedbut with our morals we're delightedSo many of us are two faced with double standers.
red roses to ward off all evil. Nice. I will have to remember that. I like your metaphorsKatherine
Ah the beauty of living authentically This was excellentand all yours...beautiful..red roses in the foyer....no need of explanation.....it's there
Charlotte Perkins Gilman would have LOVED this, and so do I. I almost feel like I don't want to say anything because it can't be added to. It leaves me shakin me lil fists and smilin, it do!PS--I am not Canadian, but I am steeped in Canadiana just the same, and I love the place. I was born and raised right across the border in southeastern Michigan, where you actually have to travel south to enter Canada!
smiles. bravo...some great imagery...i like the color yellow....
Ah the quiet of empowerment.

this says a lot, in few words. the kind of writing I like best.
Nicely penned. It is smooth, the flow pulls us along.
Such empowering words in a small piece! Wonderfully written!-Weasel
Wonderfully powerful - love the red roses placed in the hall!
What a fantastic poem, I love the line..My fantasies stood on the bed cheering as you left..
Wonderful poem, with such stirring emotion. I loved "my fantasies stood on the bedcheering as you leftyour fantasy ran after you"There is something of each side in there.
Loved it bkm. Liked the structure and the authenticity of the piece. Great idea giving the internal life the power to speak its mind.
Great poem bkm. I love it!
This is brilliant..perhaps we shouldn't make commitments when we're too young.. and go out the back door!!
Oh, man, could I ever connect with this piece on so many levels. I had to read it over several times and relish in it. Brilliant!!!
thank you everyone for your comments...yes, making committments young is probably not a good thing...but most young people seem to think they have the answers...most of us just have to learn for ourselves life's lessons...blessings...bkm
I liked that very much! I liked the black and white, and the yellow, what a nice combination of colors and ideas.
Black and white vs. yellow (brilliant reference, btw) and then red. Passion enters the house. Thank you for this.
amazing tale,your taste of color and words are fabulous!
this is such an amazing story.the structure you chose for this poem is perfect. i loved it.
love the colorful procession!
Colour is such an evil influence!:)Well done (for the poem and for closing the door)
Unique, love the form and the story. I could lose myself in your writing, each one is an adventure worth taking. I liked the colors, red and yellow, how they represented freeing from the mud and murk.
Yellow wallpaper evokes a lot in this poem -- powerful and well written. Great magpie!
Brilliant imagery... A picture of grit and strength! You've got voice!!!!An powerful magpie..
Awesome writing. Loved where you took this magpie!
Thank god he left! The foyer was needful of red roses!rel
I rejoiced with you as you joined the world of colour while rejecting the guilt too often imposed by black and white, death-worshiping fundamentalism.Powerful and honest writing!
