Beyond the Door

door

 

 

What do I fear that waits without

A black silhouette closed to me

What awaits me is cause for doubt

What do I fear that waits without

My senses urge me to cry out

A scene to enjoy but not for me

What do I fear that waits without

A black silhouette closed to me

“A scene to enjoy, but not for me” This line made my heart cry. I hope the MC gets the courage to walk out the door… Very thoughtful read, Craig. 🙂

I have never heard of a Triolet. Explain the form, please? I would like to try one.

Write On!

Hi Becky a Triolet is an older French style poem that has repeating lines as their basis. Lines 1,4 and 7 repeat as do lines 2 and 8. The only one not to is 3. The Rhyming scheme is ABaAabAB the capitols being the repeated lines. I used an 8 syllable count for this piece though you can use a 10 syllable count as well (english version). Enjoy the challenge of the triolet cheers

A Triolet for those who fear going outside
