Getting lost is not a waste of time


isn’t just pretty to think so

one happily ever after
the only place to go
just the two of us together
isn’t it pretty to think so
when we close our eyes
and imagine our forever

when we laugh without knowing why
and open every door
to let all of the love inside
our universe of crayon dreams
~a home called you and I
it is as simple it seems

the only place to go
when we close our eyes
and open every door
~a home called you and I
isn’t just pretty to think so
It is the only place I know

This poem has been posted earlier on Mindfills using a line from Hemmingway. I’m submitting this one for Free verse revolution submission – on Home.

The poetry form is called the Dandizette described on poetscollective.com as

3 six line stanzas
the form is partially inspired by the villanelle, and features a tricky repetition of four refrain lines in the final stanza.
the syllable count for the first twostanzas  is  8/6/8/8/6/8.
The last stanza has lines of  6/6/6/6/8/8 syllables.
The rhyme scheme is ababcb cbcdcd bcbcee. (ababcbcbcdcdbcbcee)
The final stanza is composed of lines 2, 5, 8, 11 from the previous two stanzas, plus a concluding rhyming couplet.
