Friends & Family

Let me speak of the wonderful,

Linkages and interactions.

Those that bring joyous distractions.

Whose company I am grateful.

Their constancy always thoughtful.

Of course I speak of friends not foes,

And dear family who did sow;

A love that grows and will not rot.

I am entwined in bless’ed knots,

I will not cut, yes this I know!

For the Ronovan Decima challenge – this week the prompt is knot.

Regret Décima

Still I reel from his ways unkind.
The way confidence, he did steal.
Manipulated, couldn't feel.
Bewildered by the charming bind.
Casual neglect blunted mind.
I did escape his cloying hold.
Extracted dross revealing gold.
I regret the age I wasted.
How I kept myself sedated.
But the escape, did make me bold...

Another challenge from RonovanWrites – A Décima with ‘steal’ as the B rhyme. Never written a Décima before and it was good challenge and interesting to work through the regret I still feel, despite several years passing, at wasting time with an unsuitable partner. Check out his guidance here on how to write a Décima.

Long Shadow Cast

Long shadow cast

Over memory’s archive

Anxious recoil

Approaches unwelcome.

*

Long shadow cast

making cherished tunes

Weakness reminders

Shame recollected

*

Long shadow cast

Causing wasted years

Accepting neglect

Casual indifference

*

Long shadow cast

Distrusting enchantment

Solitude’s safer

Heart fortified
