Future: Sonnet & Chiasmus

Standard

Day 10 and it’s a wrap. I did it!!! No! We did it!

My ending poem is on a new beginning. I applied the ABAB BCBC CDCD EE rhyming scheme and a bit of CHIASMUS in it, which is simply a reversal. Enjoy!

Future

Not GOOD BYE, but see you later ❤ !

It was just yesterday we started this love affair
Surely, one should have premonitions
Now you say it’s over that’s certainly not fair!
As I deal with my pain of losing love in slow motion

How do I activate my other senses to function?
Thought we had something good too, that, was too good to be true!
Will this path lead to light or unplanned ‘destruction’?
I gave you my ‘all’ for your one, seeking your one for my all and no clue

Yes, I’ve made friends whilst here and not a few
But how do I say good bye to yesterday
Well the world we built through words have stuck like glue!
And as we make sense of our play which began taking steps today?

Here’s to a future of new found passions
With poets of like-minds and no distractions!

  1. Love the poem. But, this poetically non-existent brain has no idea what ABAB, BCBC, CDCD, and E means. But, thank you for giving me something new to explore the meaning of on this Sunday morning.

    • Thank you Ma’am. The rhyming scheme ABAB, BCBC, CDCD, EE simply means this is a 14 line poem (Sonnet) and that the last word on the 1st line (A) ‘Affair’ rhymes with the 3rd line (A) ‘fair’ and the 2nd line (B) ‘premonitions’, with the 4th (B) ‘motion’ etc. Check it out.

      The 2nd stanza 1st line (a ‘B’) ends with ‘function’ so also the 3rd (another ‘B’) ‘destruction’ in line with the scheme I had chosen.

      Its easy to understand to use ABAB, CDCD, EFEF, GG, but I decided to try the difficult one 🙂
