nonrhyming poems
love & romance

Poetic licence says that I'm
Allowed to write down words that rhyme
And also words that don't, but ought
Because they're spelt the same - like drought.
My rhymes can only rhyme for me
The way I say the words I see,
So if your accent's not the same
And things don't rhyme - I'm not to blame.
