Seeking Joy – a Dizain poem

Thoughts go racing wildly around my brain
nameless horrors that painfully sear
into my memory so filled with pain
heart fluttering with anxiety and fear
loneliness aches, cry a single tear.
I must somehow carry on, be brave
find the sun and from darkness I must save
joy that was mine before the nights grew cold
merry songs not dirges sung before the grave
evenings warm and gay, stars bright and bold.

For dVerse Poets – More Dizain

“The dizain is a poem of ten lines with ten syllables per line and a rhyme pattern ababbccdcd.”

Til next time ~Peace ~JPP

  1. Trying to get past those racing horrors can lead to anxiety and fear. That’s when I feel most impatient and want to reach that peaceful moment. Nice line bringing out the contrast: “merry songs not dirges sung before the grave”
