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
Jester Andre Sep 2018
You and I were never meant to be

And I refuse to believe that

I still love you the way I always have

I realize this may be a shock, but

From the bottom of my heart, I love you

Is really a lie

I love someone else

More than you

I will tell you this:

Once upon a time, I fell in love with you

But this never came true, because

I'll never tell you that “I do”

I think that

In the future,

We won't cross paths again

No longer can it be said that

We were destined to be together

It will be evident that

I will never be yours

It is foolish to think that

I really do love you.
This is a reversible poem. Try reading from bottom to top and see the magic ✨

ever so carelessly
you scribbled your name onto my mind
leaving my thoughts ablaze
you are my addiction.

i hate myself/
and thats why/
im not living inside of my body/
im living inside my brain/
my heart is cold and hard because/
you never touch me with kindness/
you always hold my fragile body with hostility/
my weak body drapes pathetically over your arm/
i melt/
you always charm me and thats why/
i’m crying/
you lied to me/
im stuck wondering who killed me only to find that/
im looking in a mirror/
covered in blood/
after reading it forwards read it line by line backwards. idk i wanted to try my hand at it
edit: this.. doesn’t work on mobile so i added forward slashes to indicate the end of a line

To the pale light
Head first
Love in hand

Gasp for breath,
Cloak in white
Wash and

The sins,
A life anew
To start
I'd like to think dying is birth. And birth is dying. Here is my shot at reversible poetry.

Now read it backwards.
Know you're lying when you say you're
Beautiful, purposeful, and wonderful
Because you're
Rotten, misshapen, and broken
Let these words define you
Say you hold perfections in your faults!
Know that's a lie
Tell yourself you're just misfit and
Let negative thoughts consume you
Please don't
Try and boost your self-esteem.
Now read it backwards.
(Yes, you really do have to read it backwards, line by line)

(read forward, then backward, line by line)

I ran.
Not knowing what else to do
There was so much blood on my hands
It was mine
The kitchen knife
Caught in my chest
Consumed by
I was heightened by
But running on
Wasn’t enough
While trying to stay calm,
Losing control
It was me that would end up
Dead. Because
He was
In front of me
The whole time
It was too late
I found myself
Locked in chains
My fate was
Forward: from the victims perspective.
Backward: from the murderers perspective.

In my mind.
Feels like a long sunset kiss
on a peach tea porch
by the breezy evening sea.
Love is Music

dont say

dont give up.

things will get better.

every waking minute becomes darker
and dimmer.

you need not spend your life feeling like that which you are not. feeling as though

this is the end.

for no man, need keep company with thoughts as threating as these,quietly whispering

**** yourself.

i cannot fathom that there are those among us who mock, who utter the words

you are not alone.

That is not true.

i know that for certain

(once more, bottom to top this time.)

You know she won't leave me
Know she won't leave me
She won't leave me
Won't leave me
Leave me
Leave me
Won't leave me
He won't leave me
Know he won't leave me
You know he won't leave me
What goes around comes back around

— The End —
