Skyscraper - Poem by Reginald Scott

Freefall from the skyscraper of a mind
I insist to build and define as mine
A structure of absolute power entwined
In a thought of power freefalling in time

    I think I like this one best of yours. You use meter and rhyme/half-rhyme very effectively here, and the poem comes across as tight and precise. It's hard to writing rhyming poetry and even harder to get the meter right. This one works well. (Report) Reply
