group poem time again

These are fun. I love seeing all the different styles of our poets here. Add your three line addition to this poem.

The Walk by PWB poets

It's bleeding skin, visible sin-
a haunting and obvious chorus.
Weep for us, weep for us.


Toils in stone and dust, and
crimes of love and lust;
now scarlet gash binds us all



Memories faded, lives wasted
woven sins and joys infested
we tread along, we trudge alone.
in the hopes of the joys unknown
Wounds and burns still live on
still we tread along, we trudge alone.



to trudge along these shores ajar
baren woes, like smoothened pebbles
worry all that which carries no weight
worry none for the shores afar


First three lines by Sara from The Shores of My Dreams

Next three lines by Nishant from Absorbed

Next six lines by Soham from The Soul and the Witness

Next four by Ben from Resonance of Reverberations

(I presume you're meant to post the three lines as a comment? Forgive me if not.)

Toils in stone and dust, and
crimes of love and lust;
now scarlet gash binds us all,

Hi,

Thanks, happy you liked my contribution. This blog of yours is a great idea, I was actually scanning the internet for a community of poetry blogs when I came across it!

Wounds and burns still live on
still we tread along, we trudge alone.
