ANJELINA ABRAMS (Apr 08 2019 3:07PM) : what aspect is she talking about? [Edited] more

Does she mean literally? Physically? Mentally? Emotionally? Or is she using this as a metaphor? She could also be talking about forced sex in a way or rape, but thats only a possibility. Maybe she might even be talking about personality wise, like someone else’s personality fits into her.

ANJELINA ABRAMS (Apr 08 2019 3:13PM) : Misleading sentence more

This sentence can be interpreted in many different ways, as to like a hook into an eye like the hooks and eyes on women’s clothing, or she could be talking about a metal, sharp hook, fitting into an actual eye, we may never know what she’s talking about. But this means the poem can go both ways, she could be saying “you fit into me like a hook into an eye” as a good thing clothing wise because they are made for each other or she could be saying “you fit into me like a hook into an eye” in a bad and disturbing way like real eye and metal hook, once again might be symboling into rape of some sort since she said you fit into me which she could’ve meant physically but like a hook into an eye could mean it was painful, disturbing, horrendous, and all the other scary synonyms to describe a painful experience like that.

I feel like this can be taking many different ways, at first i felt like she was talking about just a fish but then i re-read it and i figured that she was talking about something more personal

a fish hook
an open eye

It gives the poem a stop, a finishing ending.

ANJELINA ABRAMS (Apr 08 2019 3:15PM) : clarification more

Now she confirms my belief of earlier saying how she was talking about a metal hook, that she was making the poem have a disturbing turn, as she might be symboling rape, or some other type of unhealthy relationship with another.

ANJELINA ABRAMS (Apr 08 2019 3:16PM) : Imagery more

An open eye makes it more disturbing as you visualize it, but what might her purpose be of making us visualize that?
