Magic 9: Poetic Forms
The Magic 9 poetic form is a great example of how a simple form can be created from a mistake and how some of the simplest forms are also the most fun to write.
Thinking all day of writing line by line
With thoughts of loss fueled by sorrow
To act as though it is all fine
To mask the tears that fall
The feelings of angst never benign
Forever etched into the memory
With no relieve but tears that are mine
Is there a mended heart here to borrow?
Waiting for God and a message he leaves as a sign.
