For the creative writing classwork five minute task for free verse we were told to write down some words to do with an emotion, then try to draw it into some free verse. As might be expected I was Gloomy Mcgloom and wrote this (Number 42):
The silence is empty
The frustration, deep
Cold darkness extends
Nothing will work.
My first attempt actually rhymed the 2nd and 4th lines ("Invades from my sleep") which is why I rewrote the fourth line into that disruptive early stop.
