Saying Goodbye (poem reverso) (Slice of Life: Day 9)

This poem is in the “reverso” style. It is read both forward and backwards (as demonstrated in the two columns). If you’d like to see more examples of reverso poems, check out Marilyn Singer!  Her style typically portrays opposing ideas/views/personalities when read.

  • My dear friends,
    I think of
    of love.
    My mind speaks,
    “It can’t be!”
    It happens:
    tears streaming
    through my heart.
    escapes me.
    My goodbye…
  • My goodbye
    escapes me.
    through my heart,
    tears streaming.
    It happens;
    it can’t be.
    My mind speaks
    of love.
    I think of
    my dear friends.
