Transcript of 03.05 Poetry Slam

I felt the urge to put my feelings in writing
Because when I met you I was struck by a flash of lightning
Love is our connection
To you I dedicate all my affection

Forever Love
Summative Analysis
In the poem “Forever Love,” I used poetic devices like similes, hyperboles, and repetition to express the idea that the speaker loves their partner very much and hopes they will always be together. I start the speaker off with the lines, "I felt the urge to put my feelings in writing," initially making a serious tone. Further on in the poem, I use words with positive connotation to create a passionate and calming mood, as seen in the lines, “Eternal bliss is where I'm bound/ In your arms is where it's found." I use the hyperbole, “I was struck by a flash of lightning” to show an exaggeration of the how the speaker felt when they first met their partner. At the end of the poem, I used repetition in the lines, "I look forward to our next moment together and hope it will last forever/Maybe, just maybe, it will last forever." In this way, the speaker tells their significant other they wish for their moments together to last forever. This ends the poem on a wistful and amorous tone.
Elements
I felt the urge to put my feelings in writing
Because when I met you
I was struck by a flash of lightning
Love is our connection
To you I dedicate all my affection

Meeting you was
like winning the grand prize
Especially when looking into your powerful crystal eyes
Words cannot express
What I felt when you said 'yes'

You mean so much to me
I never knew this could be
Eternal bliss is where I'm bound
In your arms is where it's found

I constantly think about you when you're gone
My heart races, the feelings I have for you are strong
I look forward to our next moment together and hope
it will last forever
Maybe, just maybe,
it will last forever
