J.W. Waterhouse; the necklace

A shadorma and a tilus about romantic love. For B & P’s Shadorma & Beyond, May 8, 2016.

My bipolar 2 manifests itself mostly as depression. There is a mania/hypomania side: binging; angry; racing thoughts; obsessions. I’ve relapsed so deeply into depression, I find it difficult to articulate this side of bipolar. A series of reblogs will help, I hope.

*shadorma: ballads


writ to she divine

dew of love

hand holding

enchantment of soul; spirit

in his mind alone


***tilus: ownership

if she’s his to cherish




* non-rhyming 6 line stanza with “beat schematic:” 3/5/3/3/7/5

** taken from spelling in B & P’s Shadorma & Beyond

*** a non-rhyming 3 line stanza with “beat schematic:” 6/3/1

    Splendid …sweet aspects of love! (I think there’s a typo though in your tilus … she would be better perhaps with an apostrofe s feel free to edit this out…)

      Thank you, and I’ll edit the tilus to your suggestion.


I love dialogue. Do you?
