Love? a poem

Had to do a model poem for creative writing. What you do is jus tthat the form of a poem and copy it but write your own poem. You just use the same number of lines, stanzes, alliterations, etc. I chose a poem by Edgar Allan Poe called A Dream. It's a really good poem. Anyways this is what I wrote, it has nothing to do with Poe's poem content-wise.


Love?
by FE Dec. 8 2009


I lay my head upon my bed.

I turn off the lights, and stare at the night sky.

I think of all the things I've left unsaid.

This melancholy feeling makes me silently sigh.

My harried heart reprimands me,

“Tell him your true thoughts” it cries.

Can I answer my hearts plea and set my feelings free?

Why not? For I do not believe these sentiments are lies.

I love him – I love him.

Are these worrisome words true?

I never knew love was so grim,

To me this intense emotion is so very new.

I cannot get him out of my head.

Without him by my side, I feel a vast void

form in a hidden part of my heart, and it fills me with dread.

I feel that if I do not tell him soon, my heart will be destroyed.

Hi Filipa,

Your poem made my (not-harried0 heart soar! I loved the alliteration; i loved the internal rhyme; and I love Poe. (do you know his "the Bells"? We had to memorize poems when I was in school and that seems to be the only one I remember. But it was your words and their conveyed emotion which resonated with me--wondering about love; feeling love screaming in every cell of your body and the flood of physical sensations. Oh man. good times! can't wait to read more. Thanks, Filipa.
