Extreme Feelings

Depression
Lost, saddened
Aching, crying, dying
Trapped, hopeless, excited, loved
Laughing, singing, smiling
Exuberant, warmth
Elation

This a Diamante poem which is a seven-lined contrast poem set up in a diamond shape, which was created by Dr. Iris Tiedt of San Jose State University. The poem can be used in two ways, either comparing and contrasting two different subjects, or naming synonyms and antonyms for another subject.  The format is:
Line 1:  a noun/subject
Line 2:  two adjectives that describe the noun in line 1
Line 3:  three words ending in -ing that are related to the noun in line 1
Line 4:  two words describing the noun in line 1 and two words describing the noun in line 7
Line 5:   three words ending in -ing that are related to the noun in line 7
Line 6:  two adjectives that describe the noun in line 7
Line 7:  a noun/subject that is either a synonym or antonym of the noun in line 1
