Welcome to Day 16! Today’s prompt is Catch Me When I Fall. Finding that person who will support you at every turn is such an important part of any relationship. Also significant is what happens after the fall. How would you describe the balance between giving support and receiving it?

  1. an attempt at terzanelle.. ( one word replaced in line 3)
    concept is for any pyramidal system...as in corporate or even family structures..

    Catch me when I fall...
    Catch me if you can
    Being in the middle
    Lift me if you can
    Alone on the top of the hill
    Away from the loneliness
    Being in the middle
    Below the peak of the hill
    Being in the bottom is rough
    Away from the loneliness
    Peak is crowded and crampy
    Filled with fear of falling
    Being in the bottom is rough
    Need a hand to lift me up
    Need a heart to hold me up
    Filled with fear of falling
    A safety net to catch me
    Catch me if you can
    Being in the middle
    Lift me if you can....sr


    Catch me when I fall...

  2. Ooooh, well done! And that last line is so strong in combination with the rest of the poem. What a great start of the day.

    1. I love how you incorporated cookery terms! It gives the whole piece a gentle tongue-in-cheek feel that's lovely.

    1. I love the way the rhythm of the words highlight the loneliness and the pain of the betrayal.

  17. The Dysfunctional Terzanelle of Doom, in which symbiotes and 'Catch me when I fall' get royally tangled up in incomprehensible metaphor things. (I was in terzanelle hell for a few hours with this one - nearly threw it out the window more than once.) It's pretty dismal, but it is DONE!

  24. This took me two days to nail down. It slipped by so many times I wrote an entire poem from the discarded lines I kept coming up with. Phew. I'm feeling the burn for sure.
