Love in Ten Lines

Special thanks to the blogger for Memorphilia, who has nominated me to join the “Love in Ten Lines” poetry challenge. I don’t normally get too much into poetry, but I thought, hey, it’s a challenge, what can I do? So now my reply to this.

The guidelines, for all others who want to be participants:

1. Write about love using only ten lines.
2. Use “love” in every line.
3. Each line can only be 4 words long.
4. Nominate around ten others who would be interested in the challenge.
5. Let ’em know you nominated them.
6. Title the post “Love in Ten Lines.”
7. Include a quote ’bout love.

So here’s my go at this:

Strange Love

Love never gives up,
Still love must not
Run towards unreturned love.

Love endures all things,
Still love must not
Lust towards unrequited love.

Love is always hopeful,
Still love must not
Hope towards nonexistent love.

This love is strange.

And that’s it. I don’t know a lot of poets on WordPress, mainly prose writers. I should get around to fixing that. Thanks so much to each of you. You have all guided me at some point along the way of my writing journey. Until I decided to join WordPress, my writing was moving at not much more than a crawl. Now it has changed into an all-out sprint. (As you’ve probably guessed by now, this isn’t one of those challenges where you copy and past near verbatim what the last blogger said.) Thank you all for joining me in this, even if I’m not the most reliable for day-to-day blogs. College and such.

Anyway, anyone is able to join up, this doesn’t just go to those I nominated. If you’re interested, just start typing! Typing takes you all manner of wonderful places.
