Old figment "Backwards Contest" entry. A poem about backwards love.
Their words in reverse now,
Their smiles to each other divine,
Their bodies moving into past, somehow.
Rewind back to when they first confessed,
Not caring of other people’s thoughts,
Before, the thought of loving a girl caused stress,
But like a fish on a hook, they were caught.
Back to when they questioned,
The way they felt inside,
Because it was unmentioned,
Something they had to hide.
Back to when they first saw each other,
Girl and Girl in different lights,
Both amazed by the other,
The past and future were out of sight.
When Love Is Backwards,
In every way,
You read it right.
