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.

(258) The Miss Dial Ghost

I’m on the other side asking

Are you lonely tonight?  Ghosting

Me is not right!?  I need to know.

I need you now my tempest dial!

I want to feel your warmth again.

We will against slow burn romance.

Don’t look away!  I’m here to stay!

Don’t be dismay! I’m your squeeze play!

Everything you own - plastic cream.

I will fulfill your wildest dream.

Allow me to come back & bee

By your side with no remorse gee!

Let me approach and groove you more!

Let me break down on the dancefloor.

Let me missile your next bunker

To kingdom come my once in herd!

I need your love my lonely nights!

Give me your heavy soul tonight.

Give me a chance to be your friend.

I will worship you to the end.
