Unwritten




Liquid skies capricious - titillatingly crimson

Blushing clouds enthralled- at the horizon

When a poem was not written...........

A couple nudged closer somewhere

Enkindled passion rage without any care

Two silhouettes entwined- smitten


Lost in memories unbeknownst

Tethered at the edge , tears glistened

The poem remained unwritten
....


P.S: This type of poetry is called nove otto.. came across it at Poefusion . Such poems are of 9 lines with the rhyme scheme as aacbbcddc with each line of 8 syllables :)
