In the Poem “A Poison Tree”, a woman lets her anger build up against a specific person which eventually leads to her killing that person and burying them under a tree. I feel like I have let tension build up between me and another one of my friends but I never killed them. That’s the only difference. I see it happen in movies and around the people I hang out with. It just continues to build until it all comes out at once. It usually never has a good ending. People start saying things they don’t mean and bad things happen. I can say this is one of the poems i can relate to the best, however, there are other poems Blake has written that have a meaning to me as well.
