Is there an Echo? No

Ennui is the echo in us of time tearing itself apart.

Emil Cioran

The answer is in the word afterlife
Life


When lost in a mistake
Take
When problems compound
Pound
There is only one question anyhow
How


One left, I say to my sullen child, “I like ice cream also.”
“So.”


The word echo derives from the Greek ἠχώ (ēchō), itself from ἦχος (ēchos), "sound"

What I seek when I don’t require any more
More
For love, what must I find from everyone
One


Expect one way when dealing with a countdown
Down


Our heartfelt connection, I question the hasty goodbye
Bye
And the thought after each message I send
End


The Inchindown oil tanks in Invergordon, Ross-shire, Scotland, hold the record for the longest reverberation in any man-made structure.
112 seconds at 125 hertz, 30 seconds at mid-frequency, and 75 seconds broadband.

Trust in nature and watch the rainfall
Fall


A lock closed, a sign as the doorstop
Stop
A glare crossed my eyesight
Sight
To late, distracted, a watery end to the carpool
Pool


An Echo Verse is when the last word or syllable in a line is repeated or echoed underneath to form a rhyming line. The echo can be the same word or syllable or a pun. The stanza, meter, and rhyme are all at the discretion of the poet. The only requirement is the repetition of the end word or syllables of the previous line.
