POETS’ CORNER

Dramatic poetry is written in verse and is meant to be spoken or acted out, usually to tell a story or portray a situation. Most dramatic poetry is in the form of dramatic monologues, which are long speeches by one actor to another or the audience, or soliloquies, which are one’s thoughts spoken out loud, regardless of whether anyone hears them or not.

Examples of Dramatic Poetry:

Home-Thoughts from Abroad by Robert Browning

Inferno by Dante

The Seven Ages of Man by William Shakespeare

Poetics by Aristotle

Ode on Indolence by John Keats

The reminder

By Nazish Sabir

Memories of the deceased souls

Still shake the hearts,

Playing many roles

Sometimes pointing towards the reality

Of the hereafter,

While at times joining the dots

Thus disclosing the fakeness of this world,

And a lot more

Side by side

By Mohsina Rehman

If there is something worthy we give it a go,

Together we learn and allow things to flow,

Our love is like raging tides that never gets low,

Day by day we get closer and wonder;

How much is there more to know

For all the moments that we had together ;

There is still a spark that needs to glow

I believe that our souls are connected ;

As there is nothing more I can know.

Side by side we grow.

The earth is healing

By Tehzeeb Sialvi

After years of trials,

And years of turmoil,

After nuclear combats,

Have defaced its soil.

A sigh of liberty,

A sigh of relief.

Earth got a chance,

To re-live and breathe!

Amidst atmospheric hazards,

And dark, hovering clouds;

Among polluted waters,

Illusion

By Tahreem Asghar

Since the day you left, I’ve been roaming the streets

Are you real or a denizen of my dreams?

Or are you the only star in a starless sky?

Or are you just another creation of my mind?
