An Unbinding

don’t hear this –

your fear in my words

 

snatched back

quicker than easy promises

 

too much

to not question  if

 

I cannot write of who I am not

or who I am

 

but only of what I wish

no-one will hear.

  1. This was complex and I had to read it several times and just when I thought I understood what it meant I realized it meant something else as well. The emphasis on different lines changes the entire meaning. This is pure genius my dear. 🙂

  2. It is very clever. For me, there is some ambiguity around the placement and intention of ‘if’. You have used that ambiguity to great effect.

  3. I agree with what has already been said – this is particularly clever and complex writing … and most wonderful for those reasons.

    The more I read it, the more it feels as if it is turning back in on itself … just magic! 🙂

  4. Thank you Val 🙂 I’m not sure about genius, or madness?
    Brad – thank you. ‘if’ is important and dropping of it should be well thought out.
    Oh Tracey, I do like magic 🙂 Thank you for that compliment. 🙂
