Conscious Sacrifice

Your Bleeding Heart by Anatane via DeviantArt

Blood drips and I cry
Why
Wondering how I live
give
rivulets of me
See
stolen flowing wrong
Strong
Seizing what is mine
Shine
   strong
      see
         why
            live


Inspired by Jane Dougherty’s Poetry challenge #18: Echo verse

Echo verse goes back centuries but it has a very modern feel about it. The concept is simple—after each line there is an echo, of the last syllable (or two), or a word that rhymes. In the instructions it doesn’t say what the poem has to be about, line length, or whether there has to be any other kind of rhyme pattern.

    A beautiful poem in a fascinating form. I’ve never heard of echo verse – I might have to try it out sometime. 🙂
