National Poetry Month 2021, Poetry

Ottava Rima

For the A-Z Challenge, I’m celebrating to National Poetry Month.

For O…it’s the ottava rima. Ottava rima are 8 lines with an abababcc rhyme scheme, most commonly written in iambic pentameter (or 10-syllable lines). The form can work as a stand alone poem, or be used as connecting stanzas.

Some Loves

Some loves are harder than others to forget.
They burrow deep in our soul and wait
for inconvenient times. Questions and regrets
feed the memories, and never satiate
our need for closure. We give what we get:
endlessly fishing on a hook with no bait.
Our only recourse is to walk away,
Hoping years and distance will lead to decay.
