Just gonna stand there


And watch me burn


But that's alright


Because I like


The way it hurts


Just gonna stand there


And hear me cry


But that's alright


Because I love


The way you lie


I love the way you lie


I love the way you lie


slide8

I can't tell you what it really is


I can only tell you what it feels like


And right now there's a steel knife


In my windpipe


I can't breathe


But I still fight


While I can fight


As long as the wrong feels right


It's like I'm in flight


High of a love


Drunk from the hate


It's like I'm huffing paint


And I love it the more that I suffer


I suffocate


slide9

And right before I’m about to drown


She resuscitates me


She f------ hates me


And I love it


Wait


Where you going


I'm leaving you


No you ain't


Come back


We're running right back


Here we go again


It's so insane


slide10

Cause when it's going good


It's going great


I'm Superman


With the wind in his bag


She's Lois Lane

slide11


But when it's bad


It's awful


I feel so ashamed


I snap


Who's that dude


I don't even know his name


I laid hands on her


I'll never stoop so low again


I guess I don't know

my own strength



slide12

Just gonna stand there


And watch me burn


But that's alright


Because I like


The way it hurts


Just gonna stand there


And hear me cry


But that's alright


Because I love


The way you lie


I love the way you lie


I love the way you lie

I'm in love alright, with my crazy beautiful life.

With the parties, the disasters, with my friends all pretty and plastered.

Every night we're down to go out,

Waking up on a different couch.

Till the next night, on the next flight.

Yeah, I guess we're doing alright.

Oh oh oh

We're falling in love

Oh oh oh

Till the sun's comin' up.

Oh oh oh

Just livin' the life Oh oh oh

what is poetry1
No really, Ms. G…WHAT IS POETRY??!?!!?!

…’cuz we’re kind of ready to take some notes now.

what is poetry2
What is poetry?
  • Poetry is a short literary art in which language is used to evoke emotion or tell a story.
    • Because it is so short….
      • Rich with language and emotion
      • Each word carries more weight
slide25

Learning the key elements of poetry can unlock some of its mystery, and help interpret the meaning of different types of poems.

key elements of poetry
Key Elements of Poetry
  • Form
  • Speaker
  • Sound
  • Imagery
  • Figurative Language
slide27
FORM
  • The way a poem looks on the page is called its form.
  • Poems are written in lines, which may or may not be complete sentence.
  • In some forms of poetry, lines are grouped into stanzas.
  • If lines in a stanza have a regular, repeated pattern, the poem has a structured form.
  • Poems that have no regular pattern are called free verse poems
speaker
SPEAKER
  • The speaker of the poem is the voice that relates the story or ideas of the poem. The speaker may be the poet, speaking directly to the reader, or the speaker may be a character or voice created by the poet.
  • The voice may include the use of dialect, a form of language spoken in a certain place by a certain group of people. The poet may also use idioms to make the speaker’s voice more realistic.
sound
SOUND
  • Because most poems are meant to be read aloud, poets choose and arrange words to create sounds that appeal to the listener.
  • Four techniques that poets use to create sound are rhyme, rhythm, repetition, and onomatopoeia.
imagery
IMAGERY
  • Imagery is language that appeals to the reader’s five senses—sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch.
  • Writers often use imagery to draw readers into a scene.
  • Think about the phrase “feather clouds” or “blistering sands.” Do the images remind you of places you’ve been or experiences you’ve had?
figurative language
FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE
  • Writers may use figurative language when they choose words and phrases that help readers picture ordinary things in new ways.
  • We will focus on four main types of figurative language:
    • simile,
    • metaphor,
    • analogy,
    • and personification.
reading poetry
Reading Poetry
  • Reading poetry can move us from laughter to tears. Why? Because many poems are written to express emotion. To understand the effect of a poem, pay attention to the elements of form, sound, speaker, imagery, and figurative language.

the tropics of new york by claude mckay
The Tropics of New York by Claude McKay

Bananas ripe and green, and ginger root

Cocoa in pods and alligator pears,

And tangerines and mangoes and grape fruit,

Fit for the highest prize at parish fairs,

Sat in the window, bringing memories

of fruit-trees laden by low-singing rills,

And dewy dawns, and mystical skies

In benediction over nun-like hills.

My eyes grow dim, and I could no more gaze;

A wave of longing through my body swept,

And, hungry for the old, familiar ways

I turned aside and bowed my head and wept.
