This is a challenge that was presented to me a while back by a friend. I believe it originally appeared in Writers Digest.

Write the first line. The last word in that line must be used as the first word in the next line, and so on. Sounds simple, right? Wait! The last word of the last line must be the same as the FIRST word in the first line. This was my response:


Joy

Joy, the sound of glass touching
Touching each other they smile
Smile over small pools of champagne
Champagne bubbles toast a new life
Life together, intertwined and linked
Linked arms raise the glasses to lips
Lips kiss, eyes close in dreams of tomorrows
Tomorrows paint scenes of pastel love
Love floods two joined hearts
Hearts promise forever
Forever is today
Today is joy

this poem doesnt have the exact words but the basesd of them,,,,,,,hope you like it all the same

Earwigs

They march in
Invade my home
Homeless insects
Insecticide acid
Acid hate
Hateful they rant
Rancid meat
Meat eating plants
Plant evil seeds
Seedlings grow
Growth of death
Dealy poison
Poisonous snakes
Snaking along, to my bed
Bed time
Time to die
Die in the dark
Darkness will make you blind
Blindness is bliss
Blissful I die
Die like them......
