The Eyes

The Eyes
The Eyes

.

Red and Blue and Green and Pink

All would be just meaningless words

If not for you my precious gifts

Here’s to you, Cheers! A thank you drink!

.

Of Violets and Oranges in the lush Green lawn

Of Silver and Gold ornaments that people adorn

Life is so full of chromatic abundance

Here’s to you, Cheers! For a rustic persistence!

.

But….

.

You made me see all superficially

You made me blind with all the flashy lights

I could see no more of true colors underneath

.

My mind could see though not visually

The dark world camouflaged by all the bright lights

I could see no more; you let my heart seethe.

.

The poem is a combination of multiple poetic forms and techniques. It is a Sonnet where first half is an Ode (rhyme – ABBA CCDD) , second half is an Elegy (rhyme – ABC ABC) using poetic devices like Apostrophe, Enumeratio, Metaphor, Epistrophe, and Chiasmus.

Hope you liked it!

    A challenging melange of form and enhancement elements – nice work.
