Where have all my words gone?  
Did you take them when you left and took flight –  
packed up in your witty conversation  
along with days kissing naked in bed?

I’m unable to write our poetry 
the emotions were stolen that night –  
there’s no use in scripting old promises 
that will no longer be cherished or read

The words, they’ve disappeared  
and my cold page lays bare in the light – 
so I’ll discard my old ways of phrasing 
follow unspoiled inspiration instead

Hello dear reader, I hope you’re well. I’ve created my own strict-form poetry with specific syllable counts and rhyming patterns.
6, 10,10,10 / 10,10,10,10 / 6, 10,10,10
