I don’t know why they call you mad

find you sad

you longed for love while they fought

and always sought

attention which you did not get

you got so set


rebellious, independent

a flower-child as they say

with strong sparks, you wilted away

to hurt … became a depressed child they resent


10-line Poem Challenge #27 – Ovillejo

In summary, the Ovillejo is:

  • A decastich (10-line poem) written in two stanzas, a sestet and a quatrain.
  • Syllabic Structure: 8-4-8-4-8-4 8-8-8-12
  • Rhythm = trochaic throughout (I personally don’t always hold to this rule.)
  • Meter = tetrameter (lines 1,3,5,7,8,9); dimeter (lines 2,4,6); line 10 = lines 2,4,6 combined
  • Rhyme scheme = aabbcc cddc
