*****

I weave my own personal sorrows like a spider.

Crafty little witches,

threading and threading.

Walking amongst unwritten words in an endless web of sorrows.

Alejandra Pizarnik, "Extracción de la piedra de la locura" (Extraction of the Madness Stone) is one of my favorites.

Anything by Emily Bronte. Some of my favourites are "Remembrance", "How Clear She Shines" and "The Night is Darkening Round Me".

Anything that is melancholic has already been mentioned here,

because humans tend to recycle the same and the same and the same,

nothing new is really allowed to emerge as institutions around the world just promote what is already known.

 

I will add Sylvia Plath to the list that you can read,

she committed suicide,

so yes her works especially the last works are melancholic

Psyche in a Dress by Francesca Lia Block is something I return to when I’m feeling melancholic, it might be the right vibe.
