  1. Gutted What is this internal wrenching tearing apart throbbing ache? he's gone away left me ache? he won't be back empty ache? ~~jvg Notes: ▼ Prompt: heartbreak Verse Form: Zeno s a recently invented form created by J. Patrick Lewis. "it was inspired by the mathematical “hailstone sequence,” simply explained here…. I call the form a “Zeno,” so named for Zeno, the philosopher of paradoxes, especially the dichotomy paradox, according to which getting anywhere involves first getting halfway there and then again halfway there, and so on ad infinitum." The elements of the Zeno are: a decastich, a poem in 10 lines syllabic, syllables per line 8-4-2-1-4-2-1-4-2-1 rhymed, x x x a x x a x x a, x being unrhymed or only L4, L7 and L10 (the one syllable lines) rhyme.>/li>
