Empty (23/30)


The prompt for day twenty-three over at NaPoWriMo was to write a triolet, which is an eight-line poem where all the lines are written in iambic tetrameter (eight syllables per line) and the 1st, 4th & 7th lines are identical, as are the 2nd and final lines. It has a tight rhyme scheme of ABaAabAB.




This bed is empty when you're gone

for your body heat is sorely missed;

vacant snuggling I rely upon,

this bed is empty when you're gone.

Sheet threads sing a mournful song,

your pillow longing to be kissed,

this bed is empty when you're gone

for your body heat is sorely missed.
