Dies of Love (A Blitz Poem)

Dies of Love (A Blitz Poem)

heart cries
heart dies
dies in vain
dies in pain
pain of hoping
pain of losing
losing you in hindsight
losing you outright
outright i go
outright i cry
cry in agony
cry a river
river bank
river wild
wild lament
wild weep
weep bad
weep hard
hard to believe
hard to accept
accept facts
accept truth
truth you share
truth you bare
bare naked
bare soul
soul searching
soul peircing
peircing my veins
peircing my body
body aches
body cries
cries for hope
cries for love
love eternally
love forever
forever i long
forever i adore
adore and admire
adore and cherish
cherish recollection
cherish memories

memories of togetherness
memories of dreams
dreams forgotten
dreams stolen
stolen love
stolen hope
love
hope

For Val’s Scavenger Hunt, Blitz Poem on Death

thank you Val for hosting the August Scavenger Hunt, I had fun writing all the prompts

This form of poetry is a stream of short phrases and images with repetition and rapid flow.

Begin with one short phrase, it can be a cliché. 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. When reading a BLITZ, it is read very quickly, pausing only to breathe.
