That was the world that never was
They knew it wouldn’t work because
It was too late and all the clause
Forget the flaws, forget the flaws

They were both in heaven at first
Have each other quenching their thirst
They went through some storms and cloudburst
And they were cursed, and they were cursed

The death of “them” and so be it
Not meant to relish the moonlit
Trust was broken so they quit
Thus they admit, thus they admit*

* 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.

Stanza Structure:

Line 1: 8 syllables; A1
Line 2: 8 syllables; A2
Line 3: 8 syllables; A3
Line 4: 4 syllables, repeated; A4, A4
