Foreword: Welcome to my collection of forced poetry! So glad you've turned up. A lot of the poems in this collection are a good deal darker than any I would write, with good reason for it. I despise fill-in-the-blank activities, but this is what my dearly beloved AP English teacher attempted to make us do for our last writing assignment. Ten poems with formats set by her and written according to her standards. I didn't like it. Not at all. But, somehow, everything turned out. Here are the results as I turned them in.
