The Likes of your Rhyme

The Likes of your Rhyme

A Poem by Zach
"

A poem about arguing with someone whose words are meant to hurt you.

"
Turn me a tide, at the likes of your rhyme,
I too have words, a crescendo in time,
Sing thee a crime committed in good taste,
Set purge to my mind, though swallowed in grace,
Words stylized and shallow in meaning,
Strike my nerves to set fire, my breathing.
Though serenity bestows the fallen,
Mighty is the one who knows his calling,
Make clear your intentions for I forgive,
Should you so choose life, make certain to live.

Just like to point out that I usually do not write with a specific format, but here I used a rhyme scheme and a 10 syllable count for each line.

Really can't go wrong with iambic and couplets :) It works great in this poem.

I like this a lot. Considering the subject matter, arguing with someone who has reached the point where their only option is to hurt you, it comes across perfectly. Great write sir. :)

I do hope that you do not get depressed. I liked this. I do enjoy looking through the poets on Writers' cafe, and have just found you. The words in this poem are meaningful, thought provoking. Well done. Best wishes, Daffy.
