You know
The path by now
So why are you surprised
When you feel the darkness, chew it,
It down
Until it becomes you, hungry
You search in vain for light
For this will fill
Your life

The lies
You were told fall
To the ground where you lie
Hungering for the truth to feed
Your soul
You writhe
Knowing that only the darkness
Glows while the light consumes
Until you die

In the darkness
Can you find your true self
Like a seed sprouting in the soil
Don’t fear
The dark
Or believe the lies you are told
Only the darkness shows
Up the bright stars
Rest now

    Thanks. I often write in this form. Sometimes jyst one stabza, sometimes a few put together. This form is called a mirror cinquain, a form of poetry I learned whilst studying writing. I like to use it becayse you can pack anlot of meaning into just a few words. It is quite a challenging form to use. Yes, Ibdo like to playvwith words,lol. Thanks for the compliment – smile x

    It is really interesting. I love using dufferent poetic forms. I will post some in dufferent forms. I often use the vilanelle too. It is a great challenge and fun to do.
