Fragile Thread

'Either It's Love or It Isn't' ~ #57-400-B-C
Married life,
full of strife,
anger rife,
cuts a wife
like a knife.

Fragile thread,
heart stone dead.
Prison fled.
Decree read,
now unwed.

Example #1:
How Many Times?

Foolish dolt,
On a colt,
Feels the jolt
Of a volt.

Venting wrath
In the bath,
Second swath!
Do the math.

Example #2:
The Kill

Crack of dawn:
On the lawn,
Timid fawn,
Lacking brawn,
Becomes pawn.

Nature's raw --
Tooth and claw,
Crushing jaw!
This I saw,
Filled with awe.

Example #3:

Cattail fluff
Velvet stuff
Colored buff
Watch it luff
Toward the bluff.

A light breeze
will appease,
lightly tease,
lift with ease
seeds like these.

Example #4:
The Escape

Footfalls quake:
Slender snake
makes a break
for the lake;
See its wake.

Swims ashore,
hole to bore--
home restore,
safe, secure
as before.
