Doubt (Mirror Cinquain)

by Meena Krish   Feb 23, 2015

Doubt is
a poison that
destroys each thriving bond,
it leaves no room for compromise
or chance;
truth turns blind and falls on deaf ears,
doubt...makes an open heart
close its doors in

    Nice poem Meena! Doubts indeed can lead to breaking bonds but sometimes telling the truth could hurt the ones closes to you and may change them from who they are. Secret is like an anchor, the more you hold on, the more it gets deeper and heavier.

    Fascinating how you doubled and reflected this format, the shape is pretty like the diamante. Darkly interesting theme as well, despite the simple wording. Very enjoyable, Meena.
