The story’s name is called “The Last Kiss” by Ralph Fletcher. The story is about a person ( a child) who gets kisses from both their mom and dad on the lips before they goes to bed, until one day before his bedtime when they went to his dad for a kiss, they didn’t get it, not knowing the reason, they tried again and again for days until they realized the grim truth .
In this poem, there is internal conflict because it is a tradition for the protagonist to be kissed by their father but since they don’t kiss on his lips anymore, it’s is hard for the protagonist to understand, which is said in the paragraph “The thought my mind held was too large to formulate into a question, too vague to clearly recognize as a loss.”
The poem shows this concept because it is said in the paragraph, “The thought my mind held was too large to formulate into a question, too vague to clearly recognize as a loss.” which shows that the protagonist has trouble adjusting to this mood, therefore making this the internal conflict.
I changed the font style to cursive because it’s all about kisses, also kisses are mostly a type of fancy thing and cursive is also a fancy thing, that’s why I changed the font to cursive, I put the green color on those specific words so that it’s clear to read due to the black background, they’re also the words I want the audiences to focus on because those are the important words which correspond to my found poem.
