Liquid skies capricious – titillatingly crimson
Blushing clouds enthralled- at the horizon

When a poem was not written………..

A couple nudged closer somewhere

Enkindled passion rage without any care

Two silhouettes entwined- smitten

Lost in memories unbeknownst
Tethered at the edge , tears glistened

The poem remained unwritten

P.S: This type of poetry is called nove otto.. came across it at Poefusion . Such poems are of 9 lines with the rhyme scheme as aacbbcddc with each line of 8 syllables πŸ™‚


  1. Simply beautiful, especially I liked the last three lines πŸ™‚

  2. some memories stay unbroken
    some problems stay unresolved
