write a poem exactly 10 lines long, without a single word repeated. Each line must have at least five words in it. That's a challenge!

The tracks of my tears

Good job, I read a lot of great poems for this challenge

"Sticks and stones will break my bones,
But words will break my heart"

10 lines, 5 wrds. in each, no words repeating, lets give it a try.

how the wind howled on spring
leaving regardless of strength
because it was scared, alone
would you blame fire yet?
course, frowning upon the brow of leaves
covering limbs that should be unfurled
opportunitys aren't a dream past
only in future referances shall tell
scarce lies following ahead
now done hoping challenge met


I think i did it and it was HARD!

Riley

Morning mist clings to my face, and my soul opens up to you......

Yes, but your poem was beautifull. I love reading the poems from these, because every word is a different suprise.
