Magic Box - Poem by Amera Andersen
I have a secret deep inside,
a magic box that I can hide.
The little box protects my pride.
Demons reside, demons reside
The demons under lock and key,
so they no longer bother me.
I’ve locked you there so now you see.
It keeps me free, it keeps me free
You left me causing so much pain,
broke my heart and left it bane.
The box is there to keep me sane.
You left a stain, you left a stain
I’m thankful for my secret box,
it keeps me crafty like a fox.
The sad emotions that it blocks.
My magic box, my magic box
So now you’re under lock and key,
and there’s no way you’ll bother me.
So now the demons live with thee.
I’ve been set free, I’ve been set free
The monotetra is a new poetic form developed by Michael Walker. Each stanza contains four lines in monorhyme. Each line is in tetrameter (four metrical feet) for a total of eight syllables. What makes the monotetra so powerful as a poetic form, is that the last line contains two metrical feet, repeated. It can have as few as one or two stanzas, or as many as desired.
