Marilyn Monroe - A Sexy Icon and a Poet?

I love Marilyn Monroe for many reasons but what is most amazing to me is her life story that seems to have endless threads of new and interesting stories.

She is an enigma to me. I may be a bit batty to state that but her innocent, sexy, dizzy, naive ways are mixture of brillance and sheer luck.

Recently, Marilyn Monroe was featured in the October issue of Vanity Fair, and I discovered when I read the article that she was a deep poet haunted by endless emotions.

Here is a summary of the Vanity Fair article: "A sensational archive of the actress’s own writing—diaries, poems, and letters—is being published. With exclusive excerpts from the book, Fragments, the author enters the mind of a legend: the scars of sexual abuse; the pain of psychotherapy; the betrayal by her third husband, Arthur Miller; the constant specter of hereditary madness; and the fierce determination to master her art."

Marilyn truly amazes me, so much so that I cobbled a quick tribute to her. Take a moment to view it.
