While reading Sylvia Plath’s poem I got the sense that the woman of the story was going through a recent breakup with a guy she was really in love with. I think the repetition of the statement “I think I made you up in my head” showed how hard it is for her to understand why this guy that she was so in love with was able to give up on her so quickly. She was saying that the ideas and thoughts she had about him couldn’t be true or else she wouldn’t be going through something so painful. I think the poem is easily relatable to the types of feelings that a person goes through during a hard breakup. I really enjoyed this poem because she talked about all her feelings during, before, and after the relationship and how the breakup affected her.
