Cyhydedd Fer

eight syllable couplets and an aa rhyme scheme

I Escaped Abuse to Love Him Freely, Which is to Say, I Escaped Abuse to Love Myself.

Cyhydedd Fer

I remembered how to play through
the beaten days where I construe

a memory bound within us
by all that which I can't discuss.

These precious secrets I protect
while speaking double dialet

And though your kiss in retrospect
is where our hearts would reconnect

Two windlings who so loved the sky
we painted feathers on our thighs.

to harness the breadth of our sex
and all the worship such effects.
