A Hunger Games Poem
While walking down a forest trial, I say hi,
To a little person that I knew as my ally.
She's young and bright, with brown eyes that shimmer,
But we had to hope that we didn't run into Glimmer.
We had planned to attack the Careers Campsite that night,
And we went our seperate ways with a signal to make sure we both were alright.
After blowing up their food, I continue on my trek,
To find Rue, which was an emotional wreck.
Their she lay, on the forest floor trapped inside a net,
I tried to help her out, only for a guy to come out and I shot him in the neck.
Looking back at Rue, you could see the blood begin to pour,
Right at the spot where that guy threw a spear at her core.
She told me that I had to win the games, just for her,
And I nodded quietly, listening to the mockingjays around us slur.
She asked me to sing to her, and I began,
Singing a song that I learned on my homeland.
She closed her eyes, and began to sleep which she would not wake,
But I kept calm, and decorated her in flowers just for her sake.
I knew she was gone, when the cannon went boom,
So I kissed her forehead and wiped a tear and let the games resume.
