That Which Fades From Sight

Is it black or white
that which fades from sight
what is wrong or right
cloaked in graphite night
but in crystal light
tempting with delight

Enraged lovers fight
run away in spite
a scream
when passion holds tight
overtakes with might
that which fades from sight
Is it black or white

  1. A classic Lai, nicely done. I still prefer to change the AA rhyme schemes for the variety and spice; but that’s just me.

  2. This reads quite smoothly for a Lai Linda. Not as forced and herk-jerk as many I have read. Not certain what it means, but it reads comfortably! Good job! 🙂

  3. These Lai lines have worked out well for you and I think you have got the right lines for the ending. So lais aren’t just black or white but can be just right!
