    rife

    Hi there!!
    happy new year !!!!
    I have a question to make about the word "rife" Is it correct to say "my heart's bleeding is rife"??? I'm writing a poem but I'm not sure if it this phrase makes sense. The word rife rhymes with the word life that's why I'm using it,
    Thank you!!!

    Re: rife

    'Rife' is not appropriate - rife adjective - definition in British English Dictionary & Thesaurus - Cambridge Dictionary Online.

    I'm afraid I can't think of a suitable word that rhymes with 'life'.
