The last time that I dropped a tear So long a time ago A tear of sadness shows its feel She's gone that's all I know
Ten years expire gave up on love Content in who I am I changed the focus of my life; The blood of Christ the lamb
Am on to concert at our church; Believers of the Cross My heart is pierced by limbate eyes Tongue tied and at a loss
Go out to eat with friends that night Large table, chairs were full Except for one right next to her; Excite me for the cull
I looked into blue bordered dreamy eyes A tear of joy; no longer in disguise ____________
The poem is written in Common Meter, except for last couplet, which is rhymed Iambic Pentameter. Common Meter is mixed meter, lines 1 & 3 are in Iambic Tetrameter and lines 2 & 4 are Iambic Trimeter. Rhyme pattern is abcb.
The poem is a true story of the loss of first love and the meeting of 2nd love, the only girls I have ever loved.
I hope you enjoy this entry and read this in iamb; makes such a difference. Thomas
