The Reaping of The Smilecrow. By themischievousannaMay 5, 2015 ( 2 ) The dancing agony fills me up so, Scouring for remnants of a whole To flay reduce to a gutted hollow, Taking mine for a punishing toll Status sourced from sickness deep, My personhood it shall be reaped!

I tend to find myself drawn to rhyme because I enjoy most of all the quality of how that type of poem sounds read aloud. Rhyming gives an element of cohesion and rhythmic meter. But I don’t rhyme unless it fits what I am saying, and I don’t rhyme just to rhyme. If you notice I usually write shorter poems so that each word can be painstakingly chosen. In that sense the rhyming words themselves create a layer to a poem that does not exist otherwise, an addition of meaning not just in each word itself but how and why they are connected to each other. In short I am not a hostage to rhyming’s cruel clutches, we are just friendly neighbors. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply ↓ Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
