    Nonet




    A nonet has nine lines. The first line has nine syllables, the second line eight syllables, the third line
    seven syllables, etc... until line nine that finishes withone syllable. It can be on any subject and
    rhyming is optional.

    line 1 - 9 syllables
    line 2 - 8 syllables
    line 3 - 7 syllables
    line 4 - 6 syllables
    line 5 - 5 syllables
    line 6 - 4 syllables
    line 7 - 3 syllables
    line 8 - 2 syllables
    line 9 - 1 syllable


    Example:
    a pirates playground

    the ocean is a pirate's playground
    they live their lives upon the sea
    battles are fought to the death
    the loot is divided
    they drink to those lost
    set sail again
    a pirate's
    life for
    me

    By Mark Williams








    P.S...feel free to write as many stanzas as you want.

    I tried to kill myself at age 8
    Daddy beat me for being late
    All alone with no playmates
    I gave up on happy
    Puberty hurt less
    No more soul score
    Karma poor
    What for
    God

    I died inside a long time ago
    Now I'm near to taking my life
    I might finally succeed
    I have no hope for me
    The Angel says wait
    I'm the one here
    I need to
    die soon
    God

    It is the holiday season now
    Friends and family no longer
    I'm not stronger now, I'm dead
    I don't want my own head
    But it's all I have
    I had a heart
    It's missing
    save me
    Death

    You were standing over there, right there,
    In the air with your blowing hair.
    I did stare as you were there,
    With eyes on the clock I
    saw you, looking up;
    The time stuck, but
    you did not
    give us
    up.


    I had to reearange this, because I counted wrong, Here is the version I started first which doesn't stick to the rule:

    Requiem

    You were standing over there, right there,
    In the air with your blowing hair.
    I did stare as you were there,
    With eyes on the clock I
    saw you there, looking up;
    The second hand got stuck,
    Time passed, you did not
    come back there,
    you left me
    standing
    there.

    Aint No Picky Annoyance, Is It?

    I stay away without a reason,
    Hearing hard what was not spoken.
    Laughter seeps through spilt liqour,
    Staining butts of worn jokes,
    That rest bent and blue;
    Echo-friendly.
    My reply?
    Searing,
    Sigh.

    A Drummer Taps On

    In a warzone or a stadium
    A lone drummer taps the right beat
    For battle or for pleasure
    no matter the weather
    marches with tight feet
    taps continue
    faster now
    keeping
    beat
