Abstracted mind, Actions confined,
Shattered dreams, Smiles & screams,
Intrigued wait, Very distinct trait,
Diminishing hope, Grit to elope.
~ It must’ve been love~ ( By Roxette )
No reason to smile, no hate no guile,
Always a hope, anything to cope,
Mirthful mind, sweetheart very kind,
Desire to live, make others happy & forgive.
For David’s W3:
The form has three stanzas with the first and third having an equal number of lines and the middle stanza having only one line (title of a song as required in this case) which acts as a bridge (puente) between the first and third stanza. The first and third stanzas convey a related but different element or feeling, as though they were two adjacent territories. The number of lines in the first and third stanza is the writer’s choice as is the choice of whether to write it in free verse or rhyme.
The center line is delineated by a tilde (~) and has ‘double duty’. It functions as the ending for the last line of the first stanza AND as the beginning for the first line of the third stanza. It shares ownership with these two lines and consequently bridges the first and third stanzas.
Good evening and see you next time
