Can you explain: 'nou mache sou mache' men nou pat janmen rive. mesi

Usually verb + sou + verb indicates an action that's being repeated

1. Nou mache sou mache men nou pa't janm rive.
     We kept on walking but we never got there.

2. Nou rele sou rele men pa janm gen okenn moun ki vin pote m sekou.
     We kept on screaming but no one came to our rescue

3. Mwen te lapriye sou lapriye, m pa janm jwenn okenn rezilta.
    I kept praying and praying but got no results

It's not the same as noun + sou + noun which indicate a lot of "noun"
pa egzanp:
kay sou kay - a lot of house
moun sou moun - a large crowd
