Ivory lace and pearl ribbon, pretty shoes I love, 

Flower of delicate lace on folded silk peep toes;

Jewels, silken straps, elegant wedge most beloved. 

Black lace, four-inch gold heels, length of legs to behold

Fluffiest white bed, a blue corsette, soles bright pink, 

Flower of delicate lace on folded silk peep toes. 

Burgundy patent red heels with red wine, wink! 

Malbec sliding down your throat, cheese, bread, chocolate! 

Fluffiest bed in blue corsette, soles bright pink. 

Glorious silver sparkling shimmer mocking

Until I wear them graceful on stilts, platforms slim. 

Malbec sliding down my throat cheese, bread, chocolate. 

Tall black boots, supple leather hugs my calves –winners!!

Knee-high boots prized, heels sturdy yet in winter slip, 

Until I wear them, graceful on stilts, platforms slim. 

Divine pieces of art, solve vexing mishaps, 

Ivory lace and pearl ribbon pretty shoes I love. 

Knee high boots prized, heels sturdy yet in winter slip;

Ivory lace and pearl ribbon pretty shoes I love.

    1. Ok let’s try this again. I do love running shoes. But I’m picky! I thought that repetition would work well for this poem so I chose the Terzanelle. I did use 12 syllable lines for a change from iambic pentameter (10 syllables). Glad you liked thank you!

      1. Thanks, sometimes iPhones etc are worse due to autocorrect then it was to just type out what u wanted to say. But then u become used to them, but I wish they wouldn’t change certain words lol.
        Thanks again 🙂

    1. Yes, it is very close to a Villanelle. I have a list of poem forms on my blog site with their general pattern. I knew for this piece repetition would work well. I try to use different poetry forms and http://www.shadowpowtry.com helps me learn new forms of poetry or fills in information when I don’t remember how the form worked exactly. If I haven’t mentioned it, it’s the best website for that under poem types.

      Thanks for reading!

    1. Haha. Hopefully it’s a brand new one! Yes I love shoes and honestly a nice pair whether they’re more everyday or something fancy, even cute running shoes, can literally heal any problem or make any bad day good. Extra points if you got expensive shoes on sale!
      Thanks Bjorn!
