  1. I would just like to say that I think this is bad, but I’m proud of my symbolism
    Please let me be wrong, I hope you’re lying
    Deep down, I know I’m dreaming
    A knife to the heart

    I miss you so, the wound is still raw
    I still expect to see you
    A knife to the heart

    I even miss your stupid jokes
    So stupid, they were funny
    A knife to the heart

  2. Okay, it’s not good, but here’s my first ever triquint

    You left me in the dead of the night
    Gone forever, I do fright
    This pain is too much
    Need your touch

    Return to me, my secret lover
    Over me, your lips hover
    This pain is too much
    Need your touch

    I see now, I need to do as you
    And flee from this darkened hue
    This pain is too much
    Need your touch

    1. WOW. Gosh, this is truly amazing, Marysa. Also, I’m so glad you aren’t sick with salmonella any more!! ❀ πŸ˜€

  3. Okay, Here I go.

    My dearest love, you hold my heart.
    it pains me to be apart,
    from you too, but
    they say you
    have died.

    How can it be true, that you dead?
    would not I have felt it?
    My love grows
    every day.

    Come back to me! Why have you left?
    Why did you meet your death?
    your words, your touch,
    I miss the and you.
    My dear one. My friend.

    I have never done this before and frankly am not quite sure a triquint is. I probably should have looked it up first. πŸ™‚ But there is a first time for everything and if you don’t do it, how will you learn it?

    1. That’s why I chose this prompt for y’all! I want y’all to learn new poetry forms and try ones you’ve never done before to broaden your knowledge (there’s dozens upon dozens of forms I never knew about until I started NaPoWriMo! It’s pretty cool!)
      Definitely make sure you look up the form before you write it, though πŸ˜› Well done, you did a great job! (the last three lines of each stanza were so beautifully placed, very clever and profound)

    2. Wow, I’m so so so sorry for your loss Alexa! 😦 ❀ This is wonderfully beautiful, I really love this. Amazingly relateable. πŸ™‚ ❀

  4. Though the day was happy, the night
    Brought words that gave me a fright.
    My world fell apart,
    It went dark.

    I was lost, scared; I felt my heart break.
    Three months go by; it still feels fake.
    My world fell apart,
    It went dark.

    The days went by fast, blurs of pure pain.
    Thoughts of her stuck on my brain.
    My world fell apart,
    It went dark.

    1. Woah, this is so deep and so beautiful! I love the depth and the meaning, my favorite parts are the ‘how’ and ‘why’ at the end of each one. Really beautiful, I love it. ❀ πŸ™‚

  5. My Love, as delicate as a dove
    Our hands fit just like a glove
    But I let go of
    Who I loved.

    We had perfection written for us
    We would never have distrust
    But I let go of
    Who I loved.

    Our love was eaten away like rust
    But we never made a fuss
    But I let go of
    Who I loved

  6. I somehow mixed this up with another prompt??? Oh well.
    More than ever
    Realize I deserve to live
    Not to take care of people, or
    To wallow in unending sadness and fear,
    But to live for myself
    I will be

  7. Falling apart at the seams
    I can’t keep screaming
    I’m trying so hard
    Just to breathe

    These dreams I’ve had
    Grasping at my brain
    Scratching my heart
    Tearing me apart

    Searing pain leaving me blank
    Leaving me suffocated
    I wish I could change
    My soul has flaked

    As my first attempt I feel like it was pretty good lol πŸ˜›

  8. Hey there Sherrie
    I wish i could see
    What everybody
    Else did
    did I

    You passed away a while ago
    Your family misses you so
    Your daughters having
    A beautiful baby girl
    I wish you were
    Here to see

    I didn’t get to know you when you were sick
    You were ill or weeks, how did we miss it
    I wish I could hear you laugh more
    I wish I didn’t shut the door
    I didn’t have a choice
    Or even a voice
    I wish I didn’t

    Well, i guess this is goodbye
    Your family misses you
    and wishes you’re alive
    I want to see you
    To know you
    To value
    what I

    Not very good, but wanted to dedicate this to my sort of aunt Sherrie who passed a wile ago and is dearly missed by my family. Her daughter is having a baby soon, and I know she would’ve wanted her mother and father there to see it. 😦 ❀ Comments are appreciated. πŸ™‚

    1. Oh my, I am so sorry for your loss, Gabby. 😦 I hope everything gets better soon. Fantastic poem, and it is very good! Also, congrats on the baby! ❀

    2. Oh my, I am so sorry for your loss, Gabby. 😦 I hope everything gets better soon.
      Fantastic poem, and it is very good Also, congrats on the baby! ❀

      1. Thank you Sofi, I didn’t get to know her much but my family was super close to her. Thank you, my cousin is so happy and is having a little baby girl! I am so excited for her! πŸ˜€ ❀

      2. Aw, I’m so glad! If I can ask, what is the baby’s name going to be?
        Fun fact, my mom instead of naming me Sofia was going to name me Gabrielle LOL πŸ˜‰
        You’re welcome!! ❀

      3. Oops! Sorry for the late reply!!!The baby will be named Scarlett Rose, which rose is her middle name, which is my aunts middle name. πŸ™‚ Haha!!! That’s awesome! My name came from a girl my mom met when she worked at pre-k, and she said there was this beautiful little girl, that se loved, so she named me after her, which is kind of but really sweet I think. πŸ™‚ ❀

  9. Okay, I have never written a trinquint before, but here goes nothing!
    Best friends, we were; yes
    I still miss you
    We were torn
    Apart, now

    Those merry times we had,
    Are done, totally over
    I think forlorn,
    Of us,

    I’ll never hear you laugh
    I’ll never see you
    Smile again lift
    Me up

    I need you here now
    Sadly I cannot do
    Anything now I
    Need you

    Lift my head up from despair
    Show me your face
    Show me your
    Flair Come

    I wasn’t popular you were
    That broke my heart
    Into a thousand
    Pieces Help

    I must face reality now
    We’re not friends enemies
    You’re with the
    Popular group,

    I watch forlornly as you
    Change from me to
    Them I turn
    Around heading

    I wish it wasn’t like
    This only you do
    You gossip about
    Me I

    Time has come for me
    To change I find
    True friends and
    Stick with

    Now I know I honestly
    Really won’t truly
    Miss anything of
    The things;
    This was super long everyone! I applaud if you made it all the way down here. Okay, this is based on losing a friend in 5th grade (last year) to the popular gang. It hurt a lot, but I finally found some real, true friends. I still have contact with them, but the one in the popular group started gossiping about me because I wore braids to school instead of the usual pony-tail, and trust me it’s a lot worse than it sounds. (In my school last year, you HAD to be with the trends, so you could leave the school ALIVE.) I’m glad I chose FLVS and found the support of CWC. ❀ I hope you enjoyed it! πŸ™‚

  10. Too young to know what was wrong.
    I only noticed the tears.
    Sadness took over.
    Never knew.

    Older, and understand this fate.
    Wish everything could disappear.
    I’d take your place.
    I pray.

    Death isn’t the only thing that we mourn and dread.
    We mourn those we’ve lost to bad judgment.
    We mourn “backstabbers” for a time.
    We mourn the “friend.”
