Description: I was browsing the internet and my English teacher's website and I found a link to an "instant poem", where you sort of just filled in the blanks. the only thing there was "this is the poem that"... "in"... "because"... and stuff like that, so don't think this didn't take any talent at all. well when i finished, i kept reading it over to myself and i sorta liked how it sounded. it's not supposed to be my best work ever by a long shot, but still, i decided to put it up here for kicks. so tell me what you think
for there's no spotlight because the lighting man forgot ~ and when loneliness hides my tears, I pray behind the curtains ~ this is a poem that sings from the green-room
where someone is crying
because she forgot to finish the script
Subtle word changes... the essence is still there though. I copied this into notepad to see what I could come up with, and that's what happened. I've managed to have mirrored stanzas and symmetrical usage of normal and italicized fonts. Totally up to you but I felt like experimenting... I think it helps to look at it from someone else's viewpoint - how they would re-edit something, you know?
