One stop Wednesday contribution

Standard

Hung by words

Beyond the scope of reason

I’m hung by rope of treason

A judgment on what’s right (or wrong)

Or harvested out-of-season

Divest me of my chainings

It’s no use to me restraining

The plump-red mouth that sings a song

In lieu of cold complaining

    • *grins* yeah, but the rhyming’s all I’m good at. I get into free verse and I’m treading water at best. Didn’t even start appreciating it until recently.

  1. A playful, yet reflective piece with another of your enjoyable rhyme schemes, my friend. The poem speaks to me of indecision, a hemming and hawing, coming to acceptance of a reality…fate, perhaps? Or perhaps a struggle against urges…an urge to love, maybe…but one, that in the accepting and embracing of, can bring great warmth amidst these cold winter months. But I ramble. Nice contribution, Kila!

    • Well thank you very much. I try to balance the meter & rhyme while maintaining the integrity of the emotion behind it… I often fall flat, so it’s gratifying to hear when someone thinks it’s any good. πŸ™‚

  2. I liked it especially “It’s no use to me restraining/The plump-red mouth that sings a song/In lieu of cold complaining…so much better to sing that song, live the half-full, find the joy in the bleak of winter and hold to beauty blowing kisses. Well done. Gay @beachanny

    • Thanks. I often feel that my work has a bit of a sing-songy feel to them, that they’re too much so. It’s nice to have one that I feel portrays that approach strongly so well received.
