Prose for Thought – Deflated


When interrogated
We delicately skated
Around the problem, elated
we had so clearly stated
and hadn’t deliberated
about what we’d annotated
We continued unabated
Emotions undulated
Pupils are dilated
Heartbeats regulated
Passions went unsated
we thought it was sedated
You say it’s overrated
I say you’re understated
It’s so unrelated
And I am just deflated

  1. fab – love the rhythm of it and I’m a bit of a sucker for using similar words at the end of every rhyme – it kind of lets the poem tell its own story I think (does that make sense? It does in my head). xx #prose4t

  2. Love this poem – amazed you’ve managed to fit so many rhymes for deflated in it. It reminds me very much of Stephen Sondheim’s clever lyrics – it’s a very similar style and very cleverly written.

  3. Oh dear. You know I’m really painfully shy, right?
    I wish I could think of something better to say than thank you, but I really mean it. It’s so awesome to have talented people genuinely appreciate each others’ work. x

    1. Thank you. Didn’t know what to expect when I came up with the idea but it seems to work. Looking forward to linking up again tomorrow x
