Day 5 Prompt: Tantalizing

“What do you find tantalizing? What has provoked your interest or desire recently?”

You can desire many things and believe

Believe you so require something —you need it

It’s vital to banish the emptiness

Emptiness, a deserted ghost town dreamed.

——

Maybe, it wasn’t a dream, walking through streets

Streets, with the sound of silence deafening, 

Deafening as a concert attended

Attended but, among crowds you’re replete

——

Perhaps, for some of us, recognition that

That, we exist –worthy of conversations

Conversations where no one talks over us, 

Us, people actually listen to and chitchat.

——

Such a tiny gift to want, people to care

Caring is scary, means we give back too

Too, we build relationships and hope

Hope we’re not hurt, overlooked, now we share.

—–

Plethora of tantalizing dreams, 

Dreams we hold close and in the end desire

Desire people to love and be loved by

By loving, ensuring no one’s unseen

Loop Poetry is a poetry form created by Hellon. There are no restrictions on the number of stanzas nor on the syllable count for each line. 

In each stanza, the last word of the first line becomes the first word of line two, last word of line 2 becomes the first word of line 3, last word of line 3 becomes the first word of line 4. 

This is followed for each stanza. The rhyme scheme is abcb.

——

Variations: 

1. Stanzas, writers choice on the number, no rhyming, the last word, first word scheme is maintained.
2. One long stanza, no limit on number of lines, no rhyming scheme, the last word, first word scheme is maintained.
3. Couplets mixed with 4 line stanzas, the last word, first word scheme is maintained in the stanzas. It can also be used in the couplets. Rhyme scheme is ab, cc, defg, hh, ii, jklm, nn, oo.

  1. We start with belief and end with dream. Both are by themselves unseen. Both can be lived out. I admire where you take us here, Amanda.

    The form really does make for quicker reading. Which adds liveliness to the whole poetic experience.

    1. Thanks Christopher. Yes I’m really enjoyed these forms with repeated words. Great flow to them. Always feel free to try one. My main point here was not leaving anyone in society out. Acknowledgement and conversation no matter the person’s age, mental state, problems etc. So many people just need someone to even sit with the, in silence and just be there. Many people things are tantalizing and what we dream for, what we think we need, for many people is so simple as human connection. Even a cat or a dog.
