A to Z Challenge Poetry

Loop Poetry: Unanswered #atozchallenge

I wish you could see
See what I mean
Mean when I ask
Ask you to come clean

Tell me no lies
Lies that you live
Live a double life
Life to another, you give

I’ve seen the other girl
Girl with red hair
Hair that’s wild
Wild beyond compare

Does she make you feel
Feel different than I do
Do you still want me
Me, who still loves you

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.

    I’ve started looking forward to how you’d change the poetic form daily and trying to guess which structure you’d implement. This is taking me back to college and literary appreciation all over again.
    As for the poem, it’s so poignant in its heartbreaking appeal.

    I like the poem, poignant as it is.
    I’ve tried my hand at loop poetry before, but I’ve gone with the loop through the poem actually. your way is better, though. 🙂 doesn’t force the loop or the rhyme.

    This series needs to be an ebook at the end… so if I were you I would start googling for ‘ebook cover images’ already 😀

    We always question where we fell short when someone chooses someone else over us. This poem hit too close to home for me.
    Loved the form!

    The poem is just a poignant one. But I love the way you have used the structure of loop poetry to portray this.

    Another interesting form but a fun one. Your poem is however a tad sad. Perhaps best if she moved on – no point wasting time on a man who is with another.

    I like how you explain the type and kind of poetry, I had read your previous post Kyrielle and learned about different forms of poetry.
    Thanks for sharing

    This is brilliant. I loved this form of poetry for its rhythm. And as usual you have penned down a gem of a poem to enable peeps to understand the form.

    Loop poetry seemed like a relay race. With words this relay has conveyed drama, emotions and a complete story so well that one cant resist reading and re-reading it!
