My next post is going to be something completely different from what I usually do. I am going to post a poem. On the way into work, I was pondering the first time I engaged in cutting as a way of self harm. I am posting this FIRST so that no one reads it unless they want to. I don’t want anyone to be shocked when they open their email.
Also, a little about the format: I enjoy writing sonnets, but have a hard time writing much else. Today when starting the upcoming poem, I just wrote sentences that had ten beats, like in a sonnet. Sorry, I’m not sure what the proper terms are. Anyway, my thought was that after I got the main sentences out, I could manipulate them so they would rhyme using the form of Shakespearian Sonnets. After I typed up the sentences, I decided not to worry about rhyming, since that would affect what I was trying to say.
It’s been a looooong time since I’ve written something other than a sonnet. Quick side notes – I used to write Shakespearian Sonnets in SPANISH. They rhymed (in Spanish – not when translated) and everything. Anyway, please be kind if you decide to read my next post. Please DO NOT READ if you think this will put your safety at risk.
