Poetry, Structured Poetic Form

Truth Is Paramount (poem)

 

“Tell all the truth, but tell it slant…”

Paramount,
the secrets of the night,
weaved in perfection whilst I slumbered
wrapped in a blanket of his threadbare devotion…
spreading too thinly his gold phrases
the charm of a wordsmith
Double-speak,
brave against illusion
arising from his web of deceit
dripping molten loyalty, faithfulness and truth…
leaving integrity in his wake
then we arise in Light,
Atonement.

Poet’s Note:
The epigraph is from an Emily Dickinson poem.

The structured poetry form is a Triquain, created by Shelley A. Cephas. It is a poem with several creative variances and can be a rhyming or non-rhyming verse. My poem above is variation of a Triquain Swirl. Triquain and Triquain Swirls are always centered.
