Limerick Slide 25 Free Verse This type of poetry is free of rhyme and regular rhythm (meter). It may appear in several stanzas or in a single long one.

I love your eyes and love your stare. I love your laugh, your cocky smirk, your stupid jokes. You precious jerk, you know I do. I want my hands all through your hair each treasured strand. Im wrapped around your finger still. Am I yet yours? Your love does kill the things I hold so close to me and yet youre the best jerk I see. Jerk by Christina Slide 27 Free Verse-How to start Choose your subject and write about it. Get it all out. Stay deep and true to the rhythm of the poetic movement rolling through you, but get everything about the subject down on paper. Check your rough poem to see if anything is missing. If you need to add a line, or even a stanza, do so. If you want to include a metaphor, simile, or turn of phrase, add it. Read the rough poem aloud. Check the sequence of lines and make sure that one flows into the other. Move through your poem and make sure youve selected the words that give proper accent and cadence to the overall poem. punctuate the poem like you 'd like it to read. Commas, periods, and semi-colons for pauses. Read the poem aloud until it flows and you feel it inside. Thats a sure sign of a well-completed piece of free verse. Slide 28 Winter Poem by Nikki Giovanni on ce a snowflake fell on my brow and i loved it so much and i kissed it and it was happy and called its cousins and brothers and a web of snow engulfed me then i reached to love them all and i squeezed them and they became a spring rain and i stood perfectly still and was a flower Slide 29 We existed In turquoise sighs and cerulean whispers. Your arms, snug and forgiving, Sent azure pulsing down my spine. In your room, Navy shadows poured down the walls. We were bathed in sapphire. Our skin glowed ghostly in the pale moonlight, And we expelled breaths tinted with teal. We were sublime. Blue was your favorite color, you always said. It showed. I could feel it in your bones.

It tumbled from between your teeth And forced the cyan from your walls. In our sanctuary, The tangerine words were profane. All wrong. Your mouth dripped mango, Your heartbeat thudded orange, And the look in your eyes Was sharp with rust. I saw the orange kisses on your cheeks, The orange fingerprints on your collar. The blue was gone. Discrepancy Slide 30 Make Believe We were doomed from the beginning, Blinded from the start, But nothing can be done To fool a happy heart. With each smile and giggle, Every embrace and every kiss, We were shooting toward a happy ending, And we missed. Cinderella lost her slipper And it was never found. Prince Charming came too late, Now no ones sleeping sound. Pillows are soaking wet, Hopes are all lost. No more dancing in the clouds. Dreams have all been tossed.

Now your heart strives to be broken, And you long for lonely nights This time our ship is sinking Were going down without a fight.
