Lofty Lessons Learnt

I yearn

I pine

I hope

And I desire

Alas

I learn

I can’t whine

I shatter

And burn like fire

There’s pain

There’s hurt

There’s anger

And lots of ire

There was promise

There was love

There was life

Oh, you liar!

  1. I think this is the perfect length for a poem of this style. It really accentuates the kind of light-heartedness of it, reflected in the ending through rhyme. I mean the topic is quite serious, but I felt a light-heartedness to it. Rhyme always seems to make things more light-hearted.
