I was figuring out, Aleks, whether the shape that the list took presents something familiar. The only association I had was they were of opposite direction just like its content. Nice one.

Hi Alek,

 

I quite like this form, though as Joel said "opposite direction", it is actually a constant change, too. A change in a life circle. But I do feel the bitterness in the poem.

 

Powerful as always.

Another perfect creation, Alek. The mood is elated from "promise" to "prayer" and downhearted from that point to "silence." "Morning / Blue and gray" is perfect; it's vivid and inexpressible any other way. "Heart," "lies," and "pain" wallow in the pit of the blue-gray morning, and the couplet salves the wounds with salt and irony. I loved it.

Badge, bitter is exact word that I relate to with this "poem"

Joel, thank you for your comment and you did a good association.

Yes, Lake. Life is in a constant change so easily we can make poems that presents that what is already known. Glad you like the title.

Tony, how good you read the relation between the words. Actually the words are just the feelings and the couplet is as a result from all of it, a conclusion maybe?!

 

Thank you for comment.
