Poetry Day 3: Trust, Acoustic and Internal Rhymes

Internal rhyme in a an acrostic poem about trust…. ahh… that is difficult. Yet that is just what the assignment from Writing 201 dished out. Finding no joy in rhymes about trust, it was so much easier to rhyme about the lack of trust and use it as an end rhyme. But it is dark, so you have been warned….


Two, but one, invisible threads.

Remaining connected, unspoken pacts.

Under the layers of life, we did not yield.

Secrets stayed buried, no need to tell, just

true respect, without fear or expectation.


The Absence of TRUST

Tough and brutal, go it alone,

Rip it away, suspicions grown,

Ugly fears, not part of me.

Separate, disconnected, a show of strength, maybe?

Tormented, not strong, no happiness, you see?



Something to Ponder About

  1. Both poems are strong, and they definitely evoke different emotions. Very nice. I love the third and fifth lines of Trust. I also like the use of questions at the end of The Absence of Trust.

  2. 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏
    You say you’re no poet but…you are doing fine.
    Even if you had not highlighted the word trust, I would have caught the meaning anyways. Well done.

    1. Oh thank you, Lucile! That does encourage me. Sometimes, I doubt that people will follow my train of thought when I write poetry, but at least in this one, it worked. Thanks again. So nice of you to take the time to comment! 🙂
