Chant Poetry

In case you’re not familiar with chant poetry, it is one of (if not the) oldest forms of poetry out there – there is no need to rhyme, but one can if one wishes.

The prompt today, of course, was to write a chant poem. I’ve conveniently linked both the prompt and the description of the form so if you feel you want to, you can go write one too! To post or not, often poets are shy about these things.

Mine turned out a little dark today, because a dark memory surfaced, and I let it have its voice.

Where did you go?
Open the door!
You think I don’t know?
Open the door!
You can’t hide from me
Open the door!
You think I can’t see?
Open the door!
I won’t be mad this time.
Open the door!
Get out here you slime!
Open the door!
C’mon, don’t be bad.
Open the door!
You’re making me mad!
Open the door!
I’ll give you some treats
Open the door!
Candy and sweets
Open the door
But if you don’t come out
Open the door!
I’ll do more than shout!
Open the door!
This time I won’t beat you.
Open the door!
I won’t try to break through.
Open the door!
You’re gonna be sorry!
Open the door!
I’ll make you so sorry!
Open this door!
Open the door!
Open this door!
Open the door!
OPEN
THIS
DOOR!!!
