Secret Triolet (NaPoWriMo Day 23)

I keep my secrets tucked inside

because that’s where I know they’re safe

from prying eyes and wounded pride.

I keep my secrets tucked inside

securely wrapped and tightly tied.

Though sometimes they begin to chafe

I keep my secrets tucked inside

because that’s where I know they’re safe.

I realize this is not a particularly sophisticated (or even clever) poem, but I’ve never written a triolet before and wanted to give it a shot at the prompting of NaPoWriMo. Our host’s description:

“A triolet is an eight-line poem. All the lines are in iambic tetramenter (for a total of eight syllables per line), and the first, fourth, and seventh lines are identical, as are the second and final lines. This means that the poem begins and ends with the same couplet. Beyond this, there is a tight rhyme scheme (helped along by the repetition of lines) — ABaAabAB.”

Got it??

On top of that, I layered Adele Kenny’s prompt: secrets.
