When love is more than love

When love is more than love

Even with oddity, they were never asunder

Confessing and murmuring their elan

With a wink and a hug, she follows

Red lipsticks and stockings on her thighs

When love is more than love

With the right stroke and words

No pistol needed

Even with oddity, they were never asunder

Together they face the world

Even with hindrances along the way

Confessing and murmuring their elan*

Cascade, a form created by Udit Bhatia, is all about receptiveness, but in a smooth cascading way like a waterfall. The poem does not have any rhyme scheme; therefore, the layout is simple. Say the first verse has three lines. Line one of verse one becomes the last line of verse two. To follow in suit, the second line of verse one becomes the last line of verse three. The third line of verse one now becomes the last line of verse four, the last stanza of the poem. See the structure example below:

a/b/c, d/e/A, f/g/B, h/i/C
