Instead of having rhymes at the end of each phrase or each sentence have them in the middle...

EX...My poem,

Two lines

We’re like two lines whose slopes
slightly differ. Our hopes
contradict science, -- we’ve met
at one point and your line went
higher, mine went lower. Thus is
our fate,-- share a moment of bliss

only once on the white graphing paper
and say to each other the final “later”
and diverge. Your line goes higher,
mine goes lower... now I aspire
to pull it up higher, but fail--
Freight trains stop when derailed.

I cannot fight it, I go by the ruler!--
sad fate of the lines. I praise lunar
eclipses, parabolas, ellipses. They
can cross many times on their way.
But if only we pull a little bit harder
and longer, our lines just might start to

come closer and closer and closer, until
maybe... just maybe, we’ll start to feel
the lines stretching and bending,--
nearer and nearer! Polar endings
will meet and run towards the electrical
outlet, -- as one long and symmetrical

line. Defying the laws of motion
and gravity, with pure emotion.

if i could i would
realize the wood
of my furniture is red
hot for my bed
in fire for Ted and i to mingle
in the middle
of spring valley
growing barley

wetting our appetite
for peace in flight
harmonious range
of rows arrange
soothing our mind
colorblind
to reality ahead
of us
in the bus
of destiny
to eternity

realizing i am no
poet i had to blow
in the wind some more
of my folklore
animated all wrong
for the world to see me hung
insanity in action
with the wrong potion

forgive me for introducing
my mind on the line pulling
the string so tight
aroung my neck right
under the tree in bloom
full of prune


monique
