Triolet: Cutting loose

Just to make life difficult, I’ve used the dVerse theme—drinking phrases to not produce a drinking poem—to write a triolet.

I find the courage, now I’m free,

Your name is poison on my tongue,

When vespers chime you’ll be at sea.

I find the courage, now I’m free,

I drown my sorrows, let you be.

To chase your last words, how they stung,

I find the courage. Now I’m free,

Your name is poison on my tongue.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
