Holding ground, standing, your on my security team,
Wow, my heart is thumping my breath I’ve been holding.
Myself I’ve set a trial to use the prompts I set myself.
In my short poetry challenge, time, I thought would be short
Surprised myself with time to spare I truly am surprised
Your title, your poem although not a trial your title did it
Epanalepsis, a pair, wow, a pair of not matched epanalepsis.
