Iambic Pentameter Poem - Slowly Moving

Updated on April 8, 2017

Saving Words

Written when I was sixteen years old, at the darkest time in my personal history. This poem is a product of my emotional disorders diagnosis, and the eventual pharmaceutical medications that I was advised to ingest. Even in a uncomfortably drugged state writing the words in my head has always saved me

Slowly Moving Poem

Everything is moving so very slow.

I can hardly move anything, it is weird.

It's hard to focus and yet the words flow.

I get up to do something, but can't go.

I don't like this feeling it's what I feared.

Everything is moving so very slow.

So I will stay out of the way, down low.

They looked at me strange when I neared.

It's hard to focus and yet the words flow.

You would think it would be hard, a heavy load.

I didn't remember you, yet you appeared.

Everything is moving so very slow.

Slowly, like when you are caught in a strobe.

You looked at me and smiled, yet sneered.

It's hard to focus but the words flow.

I was trapped in the headlights like a doe.

You sat there with that smile, and just leered.

Everything is moving so very slow.

It's hard to focus and yet the words flow.

Rhythm Pattern

My personal favorite poet is Shakespeare, and this is was my main exposure to this form of poetry. Iambic Pentameter is the rhythm pattern that the words established in each line. When each line consists of starting on an unstressed syllable followed by a stressed syllable, and five sets of these measured 'feet'.
