Me, on Beat (A Blitz Poem)

Hideaway with me
Hideaway from me
Me and you
Me alone
Alone in pain
Alone with regret
Regret the past
Regret the memories
Memories of tears
Memories of heartbreak
Heartbreak song
Heartbreak hotel
Hotel of broken dreams
Hotel of shattered love
Love lost
Love strain
Strain to hear me
Strain to feel
Feel the weight
Feel something real
Real love
Real life
Life alone
Life together
Together forever
Together for now
Now is the time
Now, here’s your chance
Chance to relate
Chance to reveal
Reveal what you feel
Reveal what I mean
Mean to you
Mean and rude
Rude love
Rude noise
Noise of my heart
Noise, blank
Blank page
Blank and empty
Empty, like my soul
Empty, never whole
Whole damn year
Whole damn heart
Heart and soul
Heart beats
Beat away the pain
Beat down the feelings


a 50-line poem of short phrases and images. Line 1 should be one short phrase or image (like “build a boat”). Line 2 should be another short phrase or image using the same first word as the first word in Line 1 (something like “build a house”). Lines 3 and 4 should be short phrases or images using the last word of Line 2 as their first words (so Line 3 might be “house for sale” and Line 4 might be “house for rent”). Lines 5 and 6 should use the last word of Line 4 as their first words, and so on until you’ve made 48 lines. Line 49 should be the last word of Line 48. Line 50 should be the last word of Line 47. The title of the poem should be three words long and follow this format: (first word of Line 3) (preposition or conjunction) (first word of line 47). No punctuation.
