Rose Coloured Lies

Rose Coloured Lies*

Dark is the night of my years
Stained is your note with my tears
Dropped from my hand…
Windows reflect all my fears
Shattered by fragmented weirs
Beneath the rand
Rose among thorns with no shears
Coloured last blush no one hears
Lies in times sand.



I call this form: VIRELETTE*
It is like the Virelai in its structure of line and syllable make-up...the variation 
is with the word beginning each line. Each word combined in sequence creates another poem, which is a synopsis of the original poem...LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK... :) deb

    Cap'n Deb, now I think this is very cool, I like the name of it and the idea that it makes another poem is good...I did one that made a sepertae poem, but yours is different in the sense that it is the first word you use to make the new poem, I will give this a go, I like it...well done...David
