Of course she knew the man of her dreams would turn into the man of her nightmares.
That’s how love stories go,
She took her axe, sharpened the blade.
She yelled ‘Honey, I’m home’
She lived happily ever after.
Today’s prompt on OctPoWrimo.com called for a cherita. Cheritas are a stanza based form rather than a syllable-based one.
It’s really simple:
1 line stanza.
2 line stanza.
3 line stanza.
The lines can be any length you choose. Cheritas are also traditionally not titled. The form comes from Malaysia, being the Malay word for “story.” The prompt was metal. I don’t feel I’ve done it justice, but I’m happy I tried out a new form. One that’s easy to remember, and fun to apply.
