Blackout Poetry

Bursts camouflage, encased the darkness.

Peace, finally broken;

a figure collapsed entranced by shadows.

They emerged like a riot,

piercing tears filling the darkness.

All had stopped.

Filled with electricity, drifting unconscious...

Awoken to eerily silence.

Big lettering appeared in the dreary sky:



This poem is derived from a story I made a few years ago, which is dear to my heart because of how much it means to me. Poetry is not my strong point, but one time during a programme I did, we did blackout poetry with some newspapers. My attempt was not that good, but I wanted to improve so for my project, I decided to take my story and turn it into blackout poetry. I am very proud of how it turned out and I hope to improve in the future.

If you would like to see the story that I used for the blackout poetry, please like and comment, that would mean a lot to me.

Thank you for reading my first publication on Vocal!
