The Brevette, created by Emily Romano consists of a subject (noun), verb, and object (noun), in this exact order. The verb should show an ongoing action. This is done by spacing out the letters in the verb. There are only three words in the poem, giving it the title Brevette.
When I look in the mirror I see the things you said that you would be, Seems they meant much more to me It wicked how you kept me baited. was it love or were you faking? your worthless words once kept me waiting now I can’t draw, but I’m just tracing the space you left behind.
behind the things you said you’d do were things not done, things not seen through. your greying skies have left me blue and only mirrors speaking true. so I ask the glass instead of you for the truth; an honest view but I can’t draw, so I’ll just trace it: the space you left behind.
darkened clouds from clear blue sky leaving crumbs to mark the path and things you left behind I wonder if I missed my chance to stop and draw the line. these questions, I can’t face them and so I’m only tracing the space you left behind.
lying ‘cause I couldn’t face it when you left me waiting. passing all your favorite places where you left me wailing trying to keep facing forward but I think I’m failing as I trace the space you left behind.
When I look in the mirror, I see Someone who looks just like me But oh, how happy she looks Happiness is not in my books! I am just a broken self Shattered to pieces and put again But she looks whole to me Not a scar, not even a hint! She looks at me and smiles back And I yearn for the joy that I lack! I stare at her with empty eyes As from fire, my parts rise! Her strength makes me feel week I know not what it is that I seek! She reminds me of my younger self And I know I need some help To put back my pieces with glue I want to get back to a life new Where I forget all my wounds That place will be like a boon! When I look in the mirror I find Who I was once, she reminds! The long lost old version of me! I promise one day again to meet!
