One Step Forward

Avatar Author: remembrancer When I discover a description of myself that rings true, I'll let you know. Read Bio

Challenge every accident knowingly touched
By a slimy smile
And encourage a subtle confidence
Almost broken

A slimy smile
With even the “kindest” of intentions
Almost breaks
A pounding heart into pieces

Even the kindest of intentions
Will unconsciously awaken
Pieces of a pounding heart
With lingering terrors

Unconsciously awaken
A confidence subtly encouraged
Beyond lingering terrors
To knowingly challenge every “accident”

    I quite like this! Reminds me of one of those forms with repeated lines…forget the name of that form for now.

    It has an interesting repetition, all with slight variations throughout to give each line its own meaning. Nicely done.
