Sevenling: (Everything is Coming Up Suicide)
Everything is coming up suicide and solitary sunsets
and weeping inconsolably through
the cheesiest black n white movies, alone
They say pills and talk-therapy will chase ‘em away
but they ignore the quietest storms
failing to recognize wreckage left in our wake, because
we waited way too long to be nice.
Written for dVerse Meeting the Bar: the Sevenling. I knew I had to try this poetic form the moment I laid eyes on it. I may do a few more before we’re done with NaPoWriMo. Hopefully I’ll lighten up when I do!
Also read the other dVerse poets who tried this form.
