A reverse double ‘Tetractys’
Love is no less likely to hurt than heal; the road to hell is paved with purest love.
Hell's walking a tightrope, blinded by love; one bound to such relationships knows hell.
W3 poetry prompt
This reverse double ‘Tetractys’ poem was written for D. Avery’s W3 poetry prompt:
- Write a ‘Tetractys’;
- A further challenge is for the first and last word to be the same;
- A double or triple Tetractys, in either order would be okay.
Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
