As this day begins with moody grey skies
Dark thoughts of you filling me with such dread
Remembering your words and lying eyes
As you lay sleeping in this wretched bed
How you have torn this life of ours to shreds
What lies will you speak to me on this day
For I already know you did betray

Frank Hubeny is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight
He has prompted us with a seven-line poem and
says that if we like we can write a Chaucerian stanza,
a seven-line poem in iambic pentameter with a rhyme
scheme of ABABBCC. Or just write any
seven-line poem. I'm up for the challenger so I chose
a Chaucerian stanza. My first one!

Tottering between heartbreak and anger
Yes, I think that’s right about where she was 😕
Just speaking from experience. . .
I think we all can on this subject, don’t you Jay?
Anybody that’s had at least a first love
Yes! The worst 😦🤨
Part of growing up, though, right?
Sad thing is, it can happen at any time in your life 😢
And it never gets easier, huh?
Sometimes it can ☺️
Write about it 😉
The anger, disappointment and betrayal comes through loud and clear.
Thank you. I’m happy it came through in this form 🙂
Very well done, my dear!🙂💞
Thanks Punam! 🙂💕

Would you like for me to kick his butt? 😉

Nicely composed Chaucerian stanza with both good sound and sense.
Thanks so much Frank. I always enjoy a new challenge 🙂
The worst part I think is when you simply expect no truth. Nice mood-setting, Christine.
Thanks so much Lisa. I enjoyed this challenge tonight 🙂👍💕
