Dual Hands

The same rugged, masculine yet gentle hands
which tickled each nerves and gave me sensual goosebumps,
have weaved yarnful of lies that ended my life.

Disenthral

21

Disenthral: A Deten*

I’ve lived
so happily
inside your own dark world,
without a desire to be freed
really.

I did
tried to break free
against your harsh brute words
but I failed like a wilted seed,
badly.

Mind lead
weak heart fin’lly,
they fought for my own worth
and burned your spell like a wild weed,
I’m free.

The Deten is:

  • a 15 line poem made up of 3 cinquains.
  • meter at the discretion of the poet. Iambic pentameter is suggested, but tetrameter or sprung rhythm would also work. It might interesting to use the Crapsey Cinquain syllabic frame 2-4-6-8-2.

Tied Tight

Tied Tight

Tied inside your tight love,
imprisoned in your intense passion,
you took my soul away from its home.
