7 Tetractys

I had
known what I
was signing up
for I might not have scribbled down my name

between us
can soon become
the friction of love between sultry sheets

twins run
to dimensions
close to the spacetime that we live inside

can see
causeways under
construction, and new exits being built

you see
through me, and
still don’t run to
me it’s pure torture to my patchwork heart

want to
drag you to
the bedroom, and
teach you a lesson or two before lunch

rolls down
your face, and
across your lush
lips as you ask me to tighten my grip

(Tetractys are an interesting versed form to me. The count is 1-2-3-4-10. I ended up writing about 20 of them this morning before I realized what I had done, and usually don’t post this many at once, but it felt like the right thing to do so I picked my favorite 7 examples. Let me know what you think, or if you have a favorite. And as always, let me see what you can do with this form).

  1. Thanks, Chris. It’s just my thoughts. I look relatively ‘normal’ on the outside – whatever that is, but I’m pretty weird inside. You should see all the words I never post…I’d love to see what you can do with the Tetractys form.

  2. I’ve had pretty balanced experiences. Although, I was raised with more women than men, so I tend to gravitate towards people who are more comfortable with their own feelings. I collaborate with a lot of people on WordPress – both male and female, and a number of us have even moved to other social mediums to create friendships, and keep up with one another. It’s been a beautiful process, really. I hope that answers your question.
