Saccharine promises

Once upon a time, drenched in love we whispered,
saccharine promises filled with naive schemes,
sighing at horizon, blatant blue and blurred.

In fractured moments when befall sour dreams,
effervescing from solitary sips of wine,
I hack plans in the shadows where silence screams.

Your pleads stumbled between the walls, once benign.
I laugh, listening to whips of wicked sound
strangely shocked by ruthlessness. Yours? Or mine?

Coldly licks the hem of my overpriced gown,
trail of blood, unperturbed by lifeless frown.

Poetry Form: Terza Rima

For even more of a challenge, try the Terza Rima Sonnet. This form of poem has an eleven syllable count in each line and a rhyming scheme of aba, bcb, cdc, ded, ee.


  1. That was a blood curdling love story . I loved this new form of poetry too. Was it too difficult to maintain the metre?

  2. That ends in doom. Well written.

  3. Heart-wrenching! I'm glad you attempted this style of poetry and also enlightening us about it. :)

  4. This is just so smart - to spell out a thought in a specific number of syllables and to make them rhyme too. Brilliant.
