Journal 48
A Collection of New Alliterative Verse
by ArchDuke Kenneth Khanh Du

“My reflection upon the current climate which send heat waves simmering throughout time.”

New Alliterative Verse has five set parameters defined by me:
1. A couplet line poem with 20 lines or less
2. Each line contained no more than eight syllables
3. Each line has alliteration of either consonant or vowel
4. The alliteration must be tied to the next line (hence couplet)
5. Rhymed or unrhymed

Alliterative Verse as a form was adopted by me from the skalds of Norway. Skalds were the Viking's poet-musicians and their poetic form began somewhere in the 9th Century. The original form(s) with many however remain unstructured and often confusing /or ambiguous.


If loving you an overkill

This heart of mine don’t want to love

Another cause loving you has

Become the best thing in my life!

Every human being yearns for love,

The desire to love and beloved

Without fully understanding

Why need to find those things we’ve loved?

Love is an amazing feeling!

It can butterflies your stomach

On chance encounter you see love.

It can worm and tumble coiled chest

In agonizing rejection,

Uncertain, unrequited love.  

I love every hidden corner

Of your beautiful skin and soul, 

It cries everlasting challenge!

To find the one you meant to be

In love with now and forever!

Death can’t stop me from loving you!
