Rebuff

Lilsawarian Dectet
Rhyme scheme: aabbccdddda

Hot stuff?
That’s fluff
And trite,
Despite,
You wink
And think
Your word
Is heard
Though slurred,
Absurd,
Enough.

  1. Now THAT is a rebuff if I’ve ever read one…you did a fantasti job there!

    1. I’m still waiting to try it out 😉

      1. Hope you don’t have to too soon.

  2. Ahhh, that’s a GOOD one!! I could have used that in my younger days…

  3. I could never think and wink at the same time….

    1. Not a very useful skill in my opinion.

    Very cool!

  5. Haha, love it! You have such a way of communicating so much with so little detail. Powerful. That’s an interesting rhyme scheme; I might have to try to experiment with that.

    1. Anything with a rhyming scheme is fair game for rhymers! 🙂

    Love that rhyming scheme, wasnt sure the longing on DDDD then back to A would work, but with your line length and talent for saying so much with so little, it works perfectly. Loved it! 😀

    1. Hehe glad you liked it. The different rhyming schemes are fun to play with. I lack enthusiasm when it comes to writing free verse styles.

        ive been mulling over Haiku’s today…never written one or really read them..but i fancy a challenge….be interesting to try and put some darkness in the few syllables allowed. 😀 Also, shh, i have written a couple of xmas poems!!! Its for a potential anthology for childrens charity so i dont feel too bad..but they are pretty dark haha

        1. I think you could fit darkness in anywhere you can find some white space. 😉

          Ooo, dark Xmas poems for children…I hope you post them as I would love to read them! 🙂

            little taster, Limerick layout and pacing…

            So christmas is here again
            bet it wont snow, just rain
            it makes me feel sad
            this year is quite bad
            Gonna go jump under a train

            1. You weren’t kidding when you said dark! I should have known you wouldn’t just be referring to some coal stuffed into some stockings…

                haha, some are much much worse, although i have this little light hearted one

                At xmas im told
                if you’re not too old
                you can sit upon santas knee

                but if your eighteen
                and look rather lean
                you’re welcome to sit upon me

                😀

                1. ROFL I don’t even know what to say to this one lmao.
