Today’s prompt was to write a Rubaiyat which is a poem that follows the rhyme scheme AABA, BBCB etc.
I was a child of near fourteen
When first the black dog I had seen
And filled me with the greatest pain
And not much else I’ve felt between
I was not the same again
For happiness I had to feign
And I wished the most for the end
As my energy began to drain
Not by myself was I left to fend
I thank the friends who’d hands to lend
And I at last can see the end
Though never will it be my end.
