On Poetry Month – Poem 1.

This month is Poetry Month! In honor of this I decided to write a poem a week for the duration of the month. Four poems total. I though since I really haven’t written much poetry it would allow me to hone those skills and to do something I have never done before. This weeks poem is in the style of blank verse. Made famous by the poet and playwright William Shakespeare. It is written in iambic pentameter and is my first time writing like this. It may not be perfect, but I tried to adhere strictly to the meter.

Instinct

Staring up in the night sky, lights sparkle.

Remembering the events transpired.

She had obeyed the most base of urges.

She wished to reverse worlds; to undo deeds.

Her loves gaze: longing, calm, true, forever gone.

Tears falling upon the grass, a memory.
