Loop Poetry Challenge~~ “Madness”

by Caddo

O this madness!
Madness, clanging,
Clanging wind chimes–
Chimes that once,
Once were lullabies.

Lullabies? Siren songs–


Songs that made me weep,
Weep with pining–
Pining, raw ache;
Ache for visitation.

Visitation of your love–
Love however ghostly;
Ghostly fire imagined,
Imagined beyond real;
Real to keep forever—
Forever turned to madness.

Madness, love—I miss you.
You, my love, madness—
Madness, yes forever;
Forever yes, madness—
Madness.

  1. Harry, the Read More obviously didn’t work–not sure what I did wrong; it was meant to follow the 6th line….

  2. This is fab! It sounds Shakesperean to me!
