Create a new poem from the last line of another

Okay here's the challenge, create something new from the last line of another poem. Try to be creative, give the words a new direction, turn it into something different!

The contest will be monthly. Round one will start with one of my poems. The following rounds the poem used for the prompt will be the winner of the previous round.

*CheckB* All entries must be newly written for the contest and start with the prompt line and follow any form requirements when applicable.

*CheckB* The prompt must be the first words of the poem, but may be added too. Ex: Of her former self there is little left.

*CheckB* Please limit entries to 40 lines or less. Please include line count in your entry. Entries must be submitted in b-item format.

*CheckB* Since winning poem will be used as a prompt, please keep entries rated 13+ or lower.

*CheckB* All Rounds Start on 1st day of the month and end at 12:59 on the last day of the month.

*CheckB* Editing is fine, but please be aware that I will be reading them as they are submitted, and
may not see your changes. This will be done so that I can judge it quickly and have the winner so the new round can start the next day.

Round 10 Winning poem by Jayne

Into the World

I will not have to face this world alone?
unspoken fears in the widest of eyes,
pleading for reassurances I don't—
know how to give

grasping for words that float among the clouds
believe in anything that offers hope
invoking names of saviors who don't—
know who I am

reaching backward into dreams of my youth
wide-eyed optimist who would change the world
the only comfort given me I don't—
want to give you

heart on your sleeve, worlds about to collide
I betray with the best of intentions
the lie from the damaged soul: don't worry—
you'll be fine.

You'll be fine

Have fun and Write On!

Thanks for Your Generosity!

Kyle Curcio
