Poetry challenge, Triquint poem,

by Harry

Triquint Poem.

A poem form created by Sylvia A. Feeley, which consists of 3 verses, 5 lines each.

Lines 3 and 4 of verse 1 (Refrain) repeat in verses 2 and 3.

The syllable count for each stanza is 9, 7, 5, 3, 1 and has an aaAAb rhyme scheme

Example below

Words written in verses, they appeal.
Sung about in songs you feel.
Heartache, all to real.
Ne’er ideal.

Emotions which are hard to conceal.
Feelings that are so surreal.
Heartache, all to real.
Ne’er ideal.

Beliefs that if you were to reveal,
would cause pain too hard to heal.
Heartache, all to real.
Ne’er ideal.
