The room is full of clutter,
The room is full of clutter -
Though the emptiness is loud,
Though the emptiness is loud.
The loud room is full of emptiness;
Clutter is the though.

Silence is unbroken,
Silence is unbroken -
Without a thing to stub my toe,
Without a thing to stub my toe.
My silence, a toe unbroken
Is thing without to stub!

My voice clambers within void,
My voice clambers within void -
Where a whisper awakens the dead,
Where a whisper awakens the dead.
The dead clambers within my whisper
Where a voice awakens void.

A dead stub clambers within loud silence.
The unbroken thing is my toe
Where a full whisper is void of room!
The emptiness to my cluster awakens;
The voice is without though.

This form of poetry is known as a paradelle, first begun in France. Lines 1 and 2 are identical - just as 3 and 4 are identical, but lines 5 and 6 use every word from lines 1 through 4. A very demanding form to use, hope I did it justice!
