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.
