Glances Collide - The Melodic

Time's rhythmic clock scatters seconds around sensuality,
musicality wraps slow steps below flutters of romance,
glances collide with imagination's wondrous explosions -
implosions of erotic breath wandering beauty's fancy,
barley wine kisses whisper love to flaps of delicious chance,
advance and retreat; feet sleepily wave to the closed curtains,
millions of dreams are preparing their soft magical potions.

Oceans of pleasure have rippled before two bright-light spirits,
bracelets catch sighs that fall with elegant graceful persistence,
resistance is crumpled on the carpet's wild patterned fibres,
feathers swirl white linen thoughts into the fragrance of poets,
portraits swing tones of artistic strokes through tender temperance,
conscience delivers songs which twirl these emotional authors.

Lovers are caught in constellations' harmonic desire;
fired flames which search now for release in buttered silent shades,
glades in distant lands send invitations across to warm hearts,
darts of splendour openly watch syllable slips and admire,
choirs of appreciation accompany lady-squire.

I have decided to name this form a Melodic.

a ( a ) b ( b ) c ( c ) a ( a ) b ( b ) c ( c ) c ( c )
( c ) d ( d ) e ( e ) f ( f ) d ( d ) e ( e ) f ( f )
( f ) g ( g ) h ( h ) i ( i ) g (g) g

It is 15 syllables per line
and at the beginning of every new line
you rhyme with the last word of the previous line.

The first verse is 7 lines,
the second verse is 6 lines
and third verse is 5 lines.

The rhyme for the whole poem is end line rhyme -


Each new line beginning must be the same rhyme as the
end line rhyme of the line before it.
