NaPoWriMo Day 18

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.
