The following poem was submitted by a senior at Sacred Heart Academy who visited campus recently.
A Year of Capricorn is a poem about delusional, heartbreak and realization from the speaker's point of view on the person they met in January and their one-sided connection within a span of 12 months. I feel that the speaker deals with the typicality of life and towards the end of the poem finally understands that from the beginning that their 'friendship' was never meant to be.
A Year of Capricorn
By Ashlyn Jurena (senior at Sacred Heart Academy)
In January, I first met you
In February, I never felt blue
In March, you drifted away
In April, I wanted you to stay
In May, you begged for forgiveness
In June, I was happy nonetheless
In July, fireworks flared in the essence of love
In August, you had to part
In September, thou broke my heart
In October, my soul was torn apart
But in November, it made me remember
That in December all this time we were nothing more than just friends.
