Here's a little countdown !
...
I don't have much to say so
You should know that
All colors have their own image
and like colors, emotions tend to show an image
, emotions bring out many things in us,
Quite like the sadness from not knowing how to make a backward and forward poem



Don't boo me, so I know you liked that.

Forward & Backward Poem Art Contest by revo.
We shall take everything
from each other
Yes, lovely one,
but you must give me everything...
ask, and I'll give too
I will grant you what's mine in return:
the sunshine, the dawn, the stars,
I will take what belongs to you: the sea, the sunsent, the moon,
even if it hurts
We must take everything


I'm honestly embarrassed by this lol. I don't know well how to write poems or stories in english, so I wasn't going to participate in this contest. But as I wanted to try to write something on forward-backward, I looked into very old poems I wrote and tried to re-make one it into the format. The most simple and easy one I found was a chessy love one...I hope it's valid and it fits the theme :sweatbunny

Forward and Backward Poem - “Daydreams/Insomnia” by riki
Comment:
It’s been awhile since I write something so I’m kinda rusty. Anyway, I imagine it as two settings: one in which the narrator is daydreaming while in another, the person has trouble falling asleep.
As the day slowly fades into darkness
I lay on my bed
With my loved one slumbering next to me
For random thoughts keep me awake
To no avail
I try my best to shut my mind
But fears and worries refuse to let me be
I stare out the open window
I linger in my bed restlessly and prepare myself for another day
As the night slowly turns into dawn
