Day 25 – Blood and Bones

Hello all! National Poetry Writing Month is on! It’s the time when poets from all around the world exhibit their love for the art of poetry writing. πŸ˜„

My poem for Day 25 is titled Blood and Bones! It’s a Nonet poem. A Nonet is a poem that tails away to a vanishing point. The first line has 9 syllables, the next 8, then 7, and so on down to 1. Have a look at my attempt.


Guilt, a monster that will eat up your
Conscience, hollow you from within.
Feed on your pains, your tears, thrive
On your fears, until all
That is left of you
Is a wilting
Carcass of
Blood and
Bones.
