Release

This is not a true story or event for me. This is, however, a reverse poem. When you read it top-to-bottom, you should get a certain message. When you read it bottom-to-top, you should get a message that contradicts the previous one. I chose to put this poem in reverse because if people didn’t know, they would read the poem in the way that it’s most obvious and presented–much like the situation present:

i’m Fine.

it is False that

i’m still Clinging

and

this Struck me.

in Actuality,

i have Released my grip on the past

i have Forgotten

i’ve never looked Back.

this friendship meant Nothing, and

we were never best Friends.

everyone I’ve fooled thinks

i Care.
