She pushes me to learn something new every night,
While holding my hands towards the light.
These rhyming schemes may look like a game,
But the fondness that we share is always the same.
If you wouldn’t be there, how would I know,
How commitments are supposed to be meant.
Together we’ll always walk and grow,
With you, my heart feels content.
More than physical, I feel your soul’s touch,
The affection I have for you is so much,
There’s always a sharing in everything we do,
Even in making each other read something
we always go Dutch.
I came in your life when your heart was daunted,
I wasn’t doing any good either,
as everything was haunted.
But with you, I feel you were always whom I wanted,
And finally you’re here, I’ll never let you go anywhere.
So I have to confess this is, I’ve never been this much dedicated towards poetry since 5 years. I’ve always been good in free verses, random stanzas, proses etc. But deliberately, write in a poetic form was hard for me(until now) but thanks to my teacher who just did some magic and taught me the way to rhyme, Miss Awtani, she’s a Rhyming Queen herself. I don’t say this because she rhymes with her poetry, but she can talk in rhyming for hours and with any context. Who can be this good instantly? Well, she is, indeed!
So today I got a chance to get into it deeply. I was trying to study more about how things actually work in English literature. As what we, as writers, do is a basic thing; to express the emotions. But writing an actual poetry might be difficult with proper rules.
But somehow, I learnt this Quatrain Poem rules, and its types. As always, I went to one girl who knows everything about my things, Chandni Asnani, that I have learnt this new thing. After appreciating it, she asked me to write to see if I can actually work on it. (I know, it’s her trick to made me try instantly, huh!)
And here it is finally, with my first attempt. I hope I did justice to the rules.
And this piece is a dedicated to the one who helped me learning about an addicted form of poetry with little efforts.
Thank you, Rashmi. I really appreciate your efforts, I hope and wish to learn more with time.
