I am joining in with d’Verse Poets challenge to write a a cinquain.  I’ve chosen an English cinquain with a rhyme scheme of A-B-A-B-B.  There are no length requirements for the lines.

Pride is what I should feel,
but past hurts and future fears
leave me with regrets real.
Stony silence sounds like jeers;
cheeks wet with a mother’s tears.

As I continue to grow old
and look to the end, I wonder
what does the future hold?
Are we doomed to be asunder,
or will your hatred fold?

  1. I found this melancholy – but tender, and hopeful… well written Teresa… I believe relationships are like thevarc of the sun. They begin bright, and climb to beautiful peak, then settle into evening. The season and weather for this day is the result of love’s level and human temperament.
