About

Tim, my youngest, went back to University last week for his final year. He sent me this poem today, that he wrote for his poetry class. He told me it's a Shakespearean sonnet (4 quatrains and a couplet at the end). Good thing he mentioned that, as I wouldn't have known :)

 

"Words I Never Said"

Staring through this window pane,
in a corner of the room.
In this scheduled monotony of life,
all I see is you.

that sleek hourglass body,
from head-to-toe divine,
your smile makes time stand still
and break whenever you pass by.

But these thoughts float on;
their function to deceive,
because sadly there is no "Us",
in this reality.

Your ignorance to my affection keeps me starved like the living dead,
I wish I knew what to do, with these words I never said.

Ah! This world would be unsupportable without unrequited love! (and may I ask what is requite?) 

 

Great stuff and bodes well for the future - he's got a sense of tension and how words should weave around a central idea. I'll have to post one of my own Shakespearean sonnets - they make for good practice of this fine art.... 

 

Poetry is much better than war as a recovery from a broken heart!  Keep him motivated Ellen.
