Recover and Circle

Line 1 is a short phrase or image. Line 2 is another short phrase or image using the same first word as line 1. Lines 3 and 4 starts with the same word used as the last word of line 2. Then, lines 5 and 6 use the last word of line 4. This pattern is followed until line 48. Line 49 uses the last word in 48. Line 50 begins with the last word in line 47. The title is three words long. The title format is the first word of line 3, a preposition or conjunction, and the first word of 47. You can’t use any punctuation. Luckily, these poems don’t need to rhyme. This poetic adventure will either be a lot of fun or leave me frustrated. I will call this Blitz poem is titled Recover and Circle. Let’s get our spooky scare on right now.

Recover and Circle

Face the fear

Face calamity and recover

Recover and stand strong

Recover and remember the song

Song of deliverance

Song of victory

Victory from the pain

Victory from calamity

Calamity and confusion

Calamity and anxiety

Anxiety for the future

Anxiety about the past

Past difficulties

Past mistakes

Mistakes made by omission

Mistakes made without a plan

Plan without thought for the future

Plan with strings attached

Attached like a magnet to metal

Attached like gravity’s pull

Pull with all the force of nature

Pull filled with emotion

Emotion of love versus hate

Emotion of lust versus distaste

Distaste for the voice

Distaste for the program

Program shoved down my throat

Program fill with so many lies

Lies and illusions

Lies you speak

Speak without passion

Speak truth to power

Power that is an illusion

Power too blind to see

See the wounded and weary

See beyond the agenda

Agenda with spots

Agenda that is blind

Blind to the truth

Blind and severe

Severe and harsh

Severe and promote fear

Fear of the future

Fear of your design

Design to promote fear

Design in a vicious circle

Circle of trauma

Circle of drama
