Smile and the world smiles with you. Cry and you cry alone.

An inverse.

Go on, get down

With your bad self,

Get into that groove

Party for one,

All alone, what a pity

To hold it by yourself,

Loose your hair, and try,

Spread the word all around,

If the feelings take over, don’t

Be selfish,

Be afraid to share, don’t

Keep it all in.

Sink into that vibe.

Just let yourself go.

Let the dog have his day,

When fancy takes flight,

When darkness envelops,

Feel those sins of the night.

    Oh you crafty wee thing you! Well done on this Hannah. Seriously! I had one last one that I never got to enter. Might still pop it up just cos...seems a waste if not.

    Ooh, what a wicked mood swing! Sweet, sad, fun and liberating all in one.

  • Fantastic job, Hannah! This one shifts its meaning depending on which way you read it. Very crafty!

  • Two very distinct meanings! This was so well done! Loved your poem, both ways!

  • JBaz3 months ago

    Backwards forwards both great. I like the meaning with this one, it is a two or three reading inverse poem

  • Table for two. Conversation for one.

  • John Cox3 months ago

    This is another wonderful inverse poem, Hannah, and this time the meaning when in the reverse direction is profoundly different. Great work! And a tiny shout out to Shakespeare too!

  • D.K. Shepard3 months ago

    What a reversal! Such polar opposite vibes

  • sleepy drafts3 months ago

    Oooooooof, this is so well done. Incredibly clever. Two totally different vibes read either way. Beautifully done. πŸ’“πŸ’—

    I kinda feel like dancing. Great job.

    My fav part: "Sink into that vibe. Just let yourself go. Let the dog have his day" Sometimes you just have to feel it, really feel it.

  • Rachel Deeming3 months ago

    Inverse a-go-go!

  • Ruby Red3 months ago

    very deep and meaningful! I love the lines "when darkness envelopes/ feel those sins of the night" - very descriptive and vivid πŸ’–
