While in loop

Waltz a bit

Waltz a while

While going is tough

While hanging in there

There ain’t shame in failure

There is road ahead

Ahead and beyond

Ahead of rainbow

Rainbow of hope

Rainbow shining through

Through murky waters

Through darkened wrath

Wrath sees red

Wrath seeks souls

Souls of despair

Souls albeit endings

Endings is what we see

Endings that we not know

Know, do we enough

Know , oh! so little

Little by little

Little every day

Day I fail to count

Day I see straight

Straight is definite

Straight is an oasis

Oasis called life

Oasis called death

Death, is it real

Death, is it pain

Pain for the living

Pain for the gone

Gone towards unseen winds

Gone from this circus

Circus breaks emotions

Circus lost forever

Forever breaks chord

Forever is too late

Late like the night

Late like tomorrow

Tomorrow never comes

Tomorrow is still

Still like twilight

Still like time

Time chooses to desert

Time plays a loop

Loop of continuity

Loop of memories



Poetry form :- Blitz poetry.

More about Blitz Poetry :-

Begin with one short phrase.

Begin the next line with another phrase that begins with the same first word as line 1. The first 48 lines should be short, but at least two words.

The third and fourth lines are phrases that begin with the last word of the 2nd phrase, the 5th and 6th lines begin with the last word of the 4th line, and so on, continuing, with each subsequent pair beginning with the last word of the line above them, which establishes a pattern of repetition.

Continue for 48 total lines with this pattern, And then the last two lines repeat the last word of line 48, then the last word of line 47.

The title must be only three words, with some sort of preposition or conjunction joining the first word from the third line to the first word from the 47th line, in that order.

There should be no punctuation. ( Source about the form from :- Shadow Poetry.)
