Quiet: a sonnet

We’re still working on poetry in my classroom. Today’s workshop? Sonnets. So I attempted one, and if you read it slant, it loosely qualifies for the form. Mind you, I don’t “do” iambic pentameter that Shaky loved to employ.

I’ve figured out that silence
Is more powerful than speech
Not voicing a single sentence
He feels the blame increase

I’d already share my issues
The numerous ones there were
Used up too many tissues
Focused on his interest in her

The situation is no longer mine
To deal with on my own
Already have I drawn the line
This will no longer interfere with home

It’s his loss, I tell you
My final goodbye remains true
