Tetris Pieces

Image by CookiemagiK

Coloured pieces
fit into slots.
Sometimes perfectly,
like a puzzle piece
that’s found its
rightful place.
A place to belong.
Skilfully guided,
the other pieces
fall in gently.
But when one piece is
the other pieces
It takes
commitment to
the gap.

Written for dVerse:  Meeting the Bar – Allegory

Allegory is a device used to present an idea, principle or meaning, which can be presented in literary form, such as a poem or novel, in musical form, such as composition or lyric, or in visual form, such as in painting or drawing.

  1. I was floundering with this prompt until I read your poem, which is the perfect example of an allegory. Now I think I see what I must do. Thank you.

  2. “But when one piece is
    The other pieces

    So true. Everything has to be in its place, or nothing is in its place.

  3. I love the idea of taking a game and using it to allegorize love. There’s akways that one piece missing! And the game is never ending it seems.
