Nothing ventured nothing gained (Palindrome)

by Michael   Dec 16, 2021


I
am lost
forever and alone
somewhere but nowhere
walking endlessly circling
spiralling again and again
backwards then
forwards
dear oh

dear

oh dear
forwards
then backwards
again and again spiralling
circling endlessly walking
nowhere but somewhere
alone and forever
lost am
I

    I ADORE reading Palindromes! This kind of inspired me to work on this form a bit, since I haven't tackled any in a long, long time. And you perfectly captured that listlessness of depression, that cycling and circling and aimless wandering so well, highlighted by the form. Like moving forward but going nowhere, and how hopeless that can feel. How lonely that can get.

    Congrats on the win, Michael!

    A difficult form to pull off well but you have beautifully. I love the content and the layout too. It looks like a spiral. We'll done on a great write Unfortunately I've run out of nominations. I really hope it gets nominated. Milly x
