Daily Picture Prompt 131 – tonight with lies

ccea533b506ac62924e9b3f6948037b3

Full glory
Full moon tonight
Tonight for you
Tonight on a swing
Swing to and fro
Swing for life
Life is tough
Life to think through
Through thick and thin
Through tough times
Times with you
Times on the beach
Beach of life
Beach and the stars
Stars above
Stars twinkling
Twinkling lights
Twinkling eyes for you
You and me against the world
You are my one
One for the road
One who made me cry
Cry my heart out
Cry on a night like this
This is my life
This is not fair
Fair and square
Fair and not brunette
Brunette girl
Brunette for him
Him who betrayed
Him who hurt me
Me and the night
Me on the swing
Swing my sadness
Swing with the stars
Stars consoling me
Stars in the night
Night of passion
Night of remembering
Remembering what we had
Remembering everything
Everything that hurt
Everything you’ve done
Done and away with
Done with your lies
Lies sweet lies
Lies shattering
Shattering
Lies*

* The Blitz Poem, a poetry form created by Robert Keim.

This form of poetry is a stream of short phrases and images with repetition and rapid flow.

Begin with one short phrase, it can be a cliché. Begin the next line with another phrase that begins with the same first word as line 1. The first 48 lines should be short, but at least two words.

The third and fourth lines are phrases that begin with the last word of the 2nd phrase, the 5th and 6th lines begin with the last word of the 4th line, and so on, continuing, with each subsequent pair beginning with the last word of the line above them, which establishes a pattern of repetition.

Continue for 48 total lines with this pattern, And then the last two lines repeat the last word of line 48, then the last word of line 47.

The title must be only three words, with some sort of preposition or conjunction joining the first word from the third line to the first word from the 47th line, in that order.

There should be no punctuation. When reading a BLITZ, it is read very quickly, pausing only to breathe.
