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.

well its difficult to express what you wish to when adhering to a particular style....but your words seemed unrestrained....flowed effortlessly as if in sync....coming to the write , the last lines were just fascinating "stop me to become me"-gosh it could mean so many things~maybe returning to your past, turning into someone you dont want to but cant avoid etc etc.but the best things in poetry comes under wraps....beauty!!!

it's really difficult to write within a form, this is brilliantly done, the winding journey of a love leaving you to yourself is masterful, it was a mind bender for me and thoroughly enjoyable.
