    An Etheree is a formed poem that focuses on the syllable count. There are 10 lines in an Etheree, line one has 1 syllable, line two has two syllables, line 3 has three syllables... This pattern continues all the way up to ten.

    I Hope you guys enjoy this

    Loud
    voices
    in my head
    control my thoughts
    as they destroy me.
    Louder and louder they scream
    until they are all I can hear
    and then you realize you are alone
    in the dark corners of your mind; alone.

    OMG, that is SO good. The way the intensity builds with the syllables... to the last word; alone. Brava!

    Nice! I wasn't familiar with the Etheree form before.
