Give me the key to your heart – Friday Music Prompt #1: “Jeter un Sort/Put A Spell On” by Alex Nevsky

Please give me the key to your heart
I collapse from my splintered life
I can crawl to you but don’t thwart
We meet again in afterlife

I crack the code and open it
Our misunderstanding is rife
Until every bit of sunlit
We meet again in afterlife

In open space where I can breathe
All the things I said when we strife
Not like the grey ocean that seethe
We meet again in afterlife

Please give me the key to your heart
We meet again in afterlife*

* A Kyrielle Sonnet consists of 14 lines (three rhyming quatrain stanzas and a non-rhyming couplet). Just like the traditional Kyrielle poem, the Kyrielle Sonnet also has a repeating line or phrase as a refrain (usually appearing as the last line of each stanza). Each line within the Kyrielle Sonnet consists of only eight syllables. French poetry forms have a tendency to link back to the beginning of the poem, so common practice is to use the first and last line of the first quatrain as the ending couplet. This would also re-enforce the refrain within the poem. Therefore, a good rhyming scheme for a Kyrielle Sonnet would be: AabB, ccbB, ddbB, AB -or- AbaB, cbcB, dbdB, AB.
