>i’m lost in softness on your lips
it’s never more than just a light
and tender touch which holds the night
from secret wells where silence drips
i touch the seams of pillowed dreams
behind the veil this moment fits
and like a moth i stir your flight
i’m lost – in softness on your lips
eight lines as two tercets and a couplet, eight syllables per line with the first line repeated (as much as possible) as the last. Meter is iambic or trochaic tetrameter, but fine to just count eight syllables per line for those who prefer that.
(A = repeated refrain line. ‘c/c’ refers to line five having midline (internal) rhyme, which is different to the a- and b-rhymes)
