Life is a story
That may remain untold
My life is a tale
I hope will unfold
A life filled with good
A myth centuries old

Or a fable filled with strife
A life filled with drama
Where nothing is right
A fairytale uncontrolled
Life can be a story
I don't even know what happened. I wanted to write a poem and this flowed from my fingers. Thanks for reading.
He was there for me
He always got up
Until he didn't
Broken and dead
He lay there
In the cold night
Someone had killed him
I needed comforting
Even though he lay there, dead,
No one came to help

Now read backwards, line by line.
I tried to write a reversible poem. Please tell me if it works.

I am who I am.
I know that
I am smart and talented.
It’s a lie that
I am not noticed.
I know too well that
I am loved.
It’s false that
I could be anyone else.
I know as a fact that
I am who I am.
Now read it backwards.

I should live.
I know it is a lie that
I am a horrible person.
My mind tells me that
I am beautiful.
I could never believe that
I’m not wanted.
Those around tell me that
I am special.
I will never believe that
I shouldn’t live.
Now read it backwards.
I wonder.
if I had a heart
would I know where to find it?
without a heart
who am i?
because I have no heart
there is empty space
where it should be,
but maybe
maybe it's lost
maybe I gave it up
without noticing
or maybe
I never had a heart,
to begin with
you complete me.

Now read it from the bottom to the top
you complete me.
no such thing as abstinence
just one sip and then that's it
drink from the bottle
sell your soul
and smile
just have a taste
they tell me
