A - American 767 and American Sentence
A brief preface to my A to Z of Poetry Forms for the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge. There are many, many more forms than I could possibly include in my posts. There will be traditional forms, others labeled "invented," which apparently means newer, even though all were invented at some time. Lastly, some of these forms are new to me, so bear that in mind when you read them!
I also decided to link with NaPoWriMo, as April is Global and National Poetry Writing Month. https://poets.org/national-poetry-month In fact, it's the 25th anniversary! So, I'll be A to Z-ing Monday through Saturday, and Sundays will be bonuses, not necessarily using the NaPoWriMo prompts for that day, but some prompt they gave that week. (Oh, why did I decide to take more on? I just got a puppy!)
So, let's get started.

He promised he would always love her, but we all know how that turned out.
Still, she knew she was much better off alone than with a lying cheat.
