A faint rainbow up the sky
Sky from light blue to greyish blue
Blue I feel when you’re not with me
Me and you, I say with a plea
Plea that we will endure this isolation
Isolation from the rest of the world
World in this flat horizon, not one soul
Soul, heart and spirit, they are one
One tower, some houses by the cliff
Cliff high, I cover my head with a kerchief
Kerchief over my head tied under my chin
Chin moves when I see you and grin
Grin we will and make the most of it
It will only get better, let’s hope
Hope for a better and brighter future
Future beckons, now is the time to deliver
Deliver us from the nightmares of ennui
Ennui, perhaps not when I’m with thee
Thee or thou, hopefully love will last
Last longer and everything is a blast*

* 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.
1. Stanzas, writers choice on the number, no rhyming, the last word, first word scheme is maintained.
2. One long stanza, no limit on number of lines, no rhyming scheme, the last word, first word scheme is maintained.
3. Couplets mixed with 4 line stanzas, the last word, first word scheme is maintained in the stanzas. It can also be used in the couplets. Rhyme scheme is ab, cc, defg, hh, ii, jklm, nn, oo.
