Empty Lines (Rondeau)

by Lost One   Jan 14, 2019

These empty lines stare back at me
A blank page begs and pleads that we
Work together to fill its soul
With rhyming words to make it whole
To take away its misery

And as we two sort life's debris
Flashes of insight unforseen
Bring just a semblance of control
These empty lines...

The ink builds up, I set it free
Soon the writing is all I see
This of course, the elusive goal
Fill up the lines to help console
The quiet rage inside of me
These empty lines....
