When your book is done

Do you ever want to cry
After being up so high
Reading through your favorite fiction book
When it ends your heart feels misunderstood
Your face feels like it has been slapped by a shoe
There is nothing to get you out of the blue
And it makes you fairly sad and want to run
There’s nothing like the feeling when your book is done.

Select four pairs of words (or more) from the word bank to create a rhyming couplet that tells a story in the form of a poem. While your write, keep in mind that:

1. The couplet must be a complete thought or should tell the full story.
2. The couplet must have the same or similar number of syllables.
