Where Is this Going?
(A Double Etheree)
Touch you so?
Oh, don’t you know
That I’ll take you slow?
I just can’t let you throw
This away … or … I will die!
So don’t shun my love endeavor.
I Promise, you’ll have love forever!
Trust me! Be assured that at least I’ll try.
Just where do you think this is going to go?
I’m not that kind of a girl, you know.
That shouldn’t be a big surprise
But when I look in your eyes
All my resistance flies.
My emotions flow.
I need you so!
Oh, the pressure!
I was introduced to this format by Gungalo when I reviewed her poem, Stuck with Love.
This poem is a Double Etheree. DOUBLE ETHEREE: An Etheree has 10 lines with a syllable count of 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10.
When double, the next stanza’s syllable count is reversed 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1.
There is no requirement to rhyme, but I chose to do so.
This is indeed a double.
