Day 29- Briefly research a poetic form of your choice and write a poem according to the rules of that particular form.
I’m going to try my hand at epistle today.
The Things You Must Do
If you wish for me to return,
There are some things I shall require.
Foremost, an apology of sorts,
I don’t care if the words spill out of your mouth like tears,
All I need to hear is an “I’m sorry,”
In sincerity, that is step one.
What else could I be asking for,
You simply cannot fathom.
But I shall require your entirety of self,
Thrust into emotion,
Pulled into motion for the staying of our relationship.
For at the present moment I am absolutely uncertain,
If your concern for me ever existed at all.
Next I shall require,
Told and kept,
That from this moment forward,
We shall coincide as equals, as friends, not enemies,
Make this something I shan’t regret.
After you’ve apologized,
And given me yourself,
And your word,
I shall require a motion of sorts
To put forth
This declaration of friendship
So that our selves shall be repaired.
