Writing 201 : Poetry — Love Vacation

This is Day 6’s task with the theme Faces, in the form of Found Poetry using poetic device Chiasmus.

Love vacation

Turn, turn, merry-go-round
This melody’s started
There’s no stopping now

We’re destined for
That golden day
A love vacation

Rainy afternoon, go out to town
Wonderin’ which way I should go
With you,
Who gave me an umbrella
For the rain in my heart

There’s no gap between me and you
Breathtakingly sweet kisses
Dark of night, night of dark
We’ll find peace

Keepin’ the faith will be
Right on track
Don’t go lookin’ back
In the past

We’re destined for
A brighter way
A love vacation

A little note on practice : I enjoyed creating this found poetry, there are so many beautiful lyrics I wanted to share. To create this I’ve extracted lyrics from two of my favourite Japanese drama songs and modified them a little — La La La Love Song by Kubota Toshinobu and Long Vacation by Anne McMurphy.
