Labyrinth (Mirror Tetractys)

 

 

 

Love,

You left

Without me

To the unknown.

Leaving me behind in an obscure town!

 

Here I’m haunted by daemons of our past.

So…come back soon.

Stop me to

Become

-Me.

Author's Note

Bhavya Kaushik
Tetractys is an age-old English form of writing poetry which was created by the late English poet Ray Stebbings. It is basically a five-line poem of 20 syllables with a title, arranged in the following order: 1,2,3,4,10.
Whereas, a Mirror Tetractys is a form with two 5-line stanzas consisting of a simple Tetractys followed by a reverse Tetractys. Thus, it should have a syllabus count of: 1-2-3-4-10 : 10-4-3-2-1 :)

I kinda see form as a restriction that one can set themselves. It means it's easier to fail, but when successful can be all the more impressive according to a specific standard (easily comparable etc.) I think you've done very well, I look forward to reading more of you, and perhaps to learn more about form through your skill.

Thank you ma'am, means a lot :)
I really liked this poem - especially that you signed it with "me" (unless I misinterpreted that somehow...
Anyway, keep up the good work! :)

Amazing write...Despite adhering to a rather demanding and constraining form, your words flow beautifully. To be able to express so much in such a constrained style is truly genius. Amazing write!!
