April is National Poetry Month

Today’s poem is a free verse creation inspired by West Side story. A Free verse Poem differs from the poems we have been writing because there is no set structure or rhyme scheme.

DSC_0496I Am Your Tony

The height, the stairs

its metal might

cannot keep us

apart.

Meet me on

the fire-escape

tonight,

tonight you are

my Maria

and I am

your Tony.

Our West Side Story

is international.

No Montegues

No Capulets,

No Sharks, and No Jets.

Just Us.

You are my Maria

Fine, Fearless, forbidden.

And I am your Tony

forlorn, foolhardy, and fond

of you.

The height, the stairs

its metal might

cannot keep us

apart.
