Forgiveness (Fibonacci)




and forget.

Toss aside grievance

Carve out cancerous memory.

Re-cant harsh insinuations with impunity 

and restore wrecked relationship with soothing harmonious speech, a balm to the soul.

I love Fibonacci poems!  I was first introduced to the beauty of different forms of poetry by Greg from Memoirs of a Dragon who experiments with all forms, and has challenged me as an amateur poet.  This poem is pretty self-explanatory, and I hope it resonates with you, as at some point in our life we all must forgive and forget.

Fibonacci:  a non-rhyming poem structured with the Fibonacci sequence (0 or 1, 1, 2, 3, 5 etc).  Fibonacci sequence is adding the two prior numbers together to get the new number.   If one starts at “zero” then the first two lines are single syllable. Most poems stop at 13 syllables for the last line.  


Tossed Away (Etheree)

Years of Loyalty, Plans for Future Bliss

Tossed Away with Scribbled Note

Rudderless Unravelled Life Plan

Benumbed Pain Slumbers Within

Swallowing Throat-Ached Tears

Holding Passions’ Grip

This Memory


Longed for


I had a devastating event a long time ago.  My boyfriend of 2 1/2 years broke up with me by letter, throwing me into suicidal depression.  While we have forgiven each other, now and then the pain resurfaces.  This poem releases some of the pain in poetic form.
