    Summary

    If it would help, he would beg for grace from the inexorable and pitiless grey that slides across the city when the day goes dead. He did try it, rosary and all, one desperate night, but even with the beads in his hands, he knew this war would not be ended by time or treaty.

    A sestina.

    Summary

    In the end, it was easy: a target, a fear of loss
    Hardwired in, a yearning strong enough to brave space,
    And a machine was taught (learned) to feel.

    I'm in what's called a "Creative Writing" class, and my teacher really wants me to put my poetry out there. Unfortunately, I'm not exactly a fan of poetry, but I figured that since she likes it, others might like it as well.

    Summary

    This was poetry for english. (Most people didn't like it ;-; ) its a specific type of poetry called a sestina which we all had to do. The last word in the line is bolded just so you can see the ending of the official line. A sestina is a poem with six stanzas of six lines and a final triplet, all stanzas having the same six words at the line-ends in six different sequences that follow a fixed pattern. I hope all of you enjoy this.
