Grade this Poem please

    • Thread Starter

    I wrote a poem about any chosen subject, I chose Russian roulette, please grade this from F- A*

    The last of our time
    Together was spent
    Playing a game
    Of Russian roulette
    Placing the round
    Inside of the chamber
    The cylinder spinning
    With random behavior
    Screaming in silence
    The gun at my head
    He teases the trigger
    Again and again
    His knuckles are white
    His finger pulls in
    A gut-wrenching click
    Where a bang might have been
    I let out a breath
    He lowers the gun
    The bullet is loaded
    The cylinder spun
    He hands me the piece
    He tells me to aim
    He says that we’re destined
    To finish the game
    My head meets the barrel
    My eyes unafraid
    I’ll never tell you
    The sound that it made


    That's good, but I know nothing about poetry.

    it's great, i like your other poems too

    Cheers, I write poems on there too.
    I see that you've already found the website feel free to enjoy more
    I wrote that one ages ago though I just wanted other student opinions after I found it again.

    You can't grade poetry or literature (even though AQA try to every year). It's all subjective.
