THE PYRAMID

OK, so it's an ascending number of syllables per line... from one up to ten... then back again to one. 

I hope I've not messed this up and that it actually does look like a pyramid. [With my computer skills, it'll probably just look like a potato, but never mind...] Β 


"INMATE GUILTY"

[1] Fat. 
[2] Moist soul. 
[3] Much too tired.
[4] Bloated conscience. 
[5] Please cease that talking.
[6] They can't stop the buzzing.
[7] Time to break out of this cell. 
[8] Bleak memories? Still chasing me.
[9] So I'll keep running 'til my feet bleed.
[1O] Breathtaking pain leaking from my dark soul. 
[9] I see him, grinning, in my mind's eye. 
[8] Burn him from the face of the Earth. 
[7] You can't? You're no good to me. 
[6] So catch me if you can. 
[5] Howling at the moon. 
[4] Until sunrise. 
[3] All is calm. 
[2] And then? 
[1] Fin.

    1. Haha, I wasn’t quite sure what to make of the first comment! πŸ˜‰
      Thankyou Daisy, that’s most kind. I’m glad you liked it. I essentially just made it up, really, but I’m sure lots of people have done something similar… the hardest part certainly was getting the line lengths correct(!)
      I hope you do try it, when you’re in a pyramid-y mood: it’d be great to see what you come up with. πŸ™‚
