For day 28 of napowrimo – a backwards poem

Walk away
Tired now of waiting, you
As no words still are formed
The seconds feel like hours
Turned to stone
Uncharacteristically, I’m
Always with the quick response
Normally verbose
Paralysed me
The words that you just uttered
As if a magic spell

    That’s excellent. I read it forwards and backwards to get the full effect. Very well done.

    Impressive. You must have worn your shirt backward when you wrote this.
