Dizain
A dizain is a type of poem that follows a prescribed format of syllables per line while adhering to a certain rhyme scheme. A dizain should be comprised of a single 10-line stanza which includes 10 syllables in every line and is written in accordance with this rhyme scheme: ababbccdcd.

The poet's hands are tied by written words, inking emotions in-between the lines. Nature's creatures, like butterflies and birds, oft get reduced to colors and outlines only observable from the sidelines. Poets induce feelings through abstract thoughts trusting the reader to connect the dots, but struggle to transcribe a smile or frown, for the weight of fledgling words, holds them down. Feelings untethered from reality can cause a communications breakdown, when a poet pens sensuality. (Dizain) 6/08/2021 The Poet's Hands Are Tied Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Kai Michael Neumann

I could relate to this poem, Emile. Very nice writing, indeed! I particularly enjoyed the part beginning with "Poets induce..." through "the weight of fledgling words, holds them down." This is such good writing, in my humble opinion.
