“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.
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.
