We had to write a sonnet for English... eugh.
HOWEVER I'm fairly pleased with how it turned out, not my best work ever but not everything can be can it?

Another spin of my misfortune wheel,

another disappearing act gone wrong

I couldn't vanish everything I feel,

it’s been stuck in my box of tricks too long

 

The garish colours that I tried to paint

on top of all the dusty grey could not

quite stain the nasty truth, they only taint

my poor attempts to rearrange the plot

 

So I chase this false story I have found,

and you can only stand and watch me fall

once more I hit the solid, icy ground

and lie here bruised and curled up in a ball

 

But then I pick myself up off the floor,

Looks like I'm not your doormat any more
