•high in the mountains, he grew we- ary and ragged• • his sight turned cloudy, chin un- shaven and face hag- gard•removed his boots for his feet did stink• sleep he wanted but not without a drink•one big swig and he downed it all• then he was asleep before the sun could fall•many days visited, many shadows cast•over this slum- bering man, many moons had passed •one fateful day, his eyes did twitch and then did open•he sprung aw- ake to the life he had forsaken•his musket dusty, his clothes in di- sarray•his chin - a long beard that has seen countless days•he ran to his home before noontime chime•he found only disbelief, for he had slept
i just wish you would burn. feel the torment pain and agony that i endured all because of you. oh i want you to suffer, for an eternity, just like me. whom you left, alone and forgotten. but my darling never leave a lighted candle alone without a second glance. because now, i am a forest fire. uncontrollably ablaze and oh so powerful.
Wow guys, I think I'm addicted to shape poetry. I just can't stop making shapes its so entertaining. Again not a difficult shape, but loads of fun. Hope you enjoyed and please feel free to dm or comment your own shape poetry :)
you see they sang two different tunes but together, the masterpiece formed her his treble bass rang low out soft into and the full night with joins love his in for her harmony soothing perfectly in perfectly in sync. sync.
The first two lines are an introduction and then there are individual poems down each note, together they form one bigger picture. I know the notes are wonky but I think it gives the poem an unconfined feeling, flowing like music. Hope you enjoyed :) Much easier than the other shape poetry I’ve posted before and a lot less stressful. Once again feel free to comment or dm me links to shape poetry that you’ve tried out. Hope you enjoyed :)
please darling, look at us. me and you, isn't it clear i am a simple moon, orbiting a large planet and you are my centre, providing the force i require to keep stable and moving. and like any other moon. i too, have an effect on you. because of me you rise and fall. i bring you light and dark. if we break, so will the universe.
some mediocre shape poetry just to get back into writing.

It took forever to align the slashes to give this poem shape, without them it didn't look like an hourglass. I hope you liked this poem and I'd love it if you commented some links to any shape poetry you've tried out. Hope you enjoyed :)
