Poetry Writing Challenge #4

The ‘NaPoWriMo 2013‘ challenge today is to write a cinquain.

‘A what’, I said, adding a few words that aren’t suitable for a public forum.  Fortunately, this was explained as a poem that employs stanzas with five lines.  But wait, not just any five lines, no, ‘each line has a certain number of accented or stressed syllables, and a certain number of overall syllables per line’.  Serves me right, I was remiss yesterday so I guess ’tis fair punishment, now where is my Thesaurus?

one feels your wrench.

Rhythmically shaking,
crying, sobbing, through shattered fears.
