I set out to write this poem as a circle. That is to say I wanted the reader to be able to read it from top to bottom or bottom to top and have it be exactly the same. It took me a while (2 days or so), but I did it.
It is about how I feel about relationships and how, for me, a girl must be "free" of her last relationship before she gets into one with me. Meaning that I prefer for her to have been a "free agent" as-it-were for a bit before entering "My Circle". That way remnants of the old one don't cloud her actions/reactions with/towards me and possibly spoil our new relationship.
Thus ... "You must come alone ..."
Then ... for all nay sayer's ... I did it AGAIN in "Our Circle"
I wanted to express it's meaning, true. But I also wanted to prove I could do the forwards/backwards thing again.

They have been called "Reverse poems" and "Double-back poems". I never knew there were names for it, but I did know it had been done many times by many, many poets. I just wanted to give it a shot.
