I'm trying to find poems on murder. I've got a few, but I'm having trouble finding a few more. And perhaps some poems about suicide. THey have to be by famous poets though.

    I remember a poem by Sylvia Plath as she contemplated her suicide, and I think there's a suggestion she was thinking about killing her children too. Something about white marble. I can't remember the name of it

    One of the most beautiful poems on the subject of death....which may suggest suicide-'INTERIM' by the greatest of all....Edna St. Vincent Millay

    Almost anything by Plath or Sexton

    Try Robert Browning. There's 'The Ring and the Book' and 'Porphyria's Lover'
    and 'My Last Dutchess.' Dorothy Parker's 'Resumé' is the ultimate suicide poem.
