Poem: Good Old Days Rondel

Thinking back on the good old days
Reminds me they weren't all good
We never lived life like we should
And the days all just fade away

We always wonder on what could
Have been if we hadn't parted ways
Thinking back on the good old days
Reminds me they weren't all good

Considering words I couldn't say
Looking back on where I once stood
What things would I change if I could
Like asking you then to please stay
Thinking back on the good old days

This week’s experimental poem is a Rondel following a ABba/abAB/abbaA (uppercase letters are refrains) rhyme scheme in three stanzas with 8 syllables each. You can read more about this poetry form by clicking here.
