>Short Break


Is it I am running short of break?
Is it break running short of me?
Is it I am breaking it short?
Is it short breaking me?
Well break is a break
When both mixed together
They look somewhat like this
A SHORT BREAK!
Am I right?

    I love short breaks wish there was more of them. At first I thought this was going to be a farewell see you later on type of poem and it sort of is but it's also something different love the wordplay. Allan Gerard~ (Report) Reply

    Your first stanza works tremendously well. But the poem goes downhill from there. Constant repetition of the word break might have been done to introduce the effect of the poetic device but it hinders the smooth flow of the poem. The sound of the word BREAK jars after a point. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
