My Beautiful Curse

My Beautiful Curse

A Poem by Britaini Gross

My Beautiful Curse

 

Prone.

I was born with a faulty heart,

and it was doomed from the very start.

When I was young I wanted to fall in love,

but that’s not something I’m capable of.

Clone.

Overtime I learned the motions,

how to imitate all emotions.

Everyday I was trapped on a stage,

I acted everything, happy, sad, rage.

Alone.

I spent hours staring into my ceiling,

as if the small eternity was healing.

My bones echoed and my soul faded,

the last shine of my humanity dissipated.

Stone.

My emotions never arrived,

I wonder if they died.

Long ago I might have cried,

but now I couldn’t if I tried.

Another really strong poem! The single word lines work really well in between each main stanza, almost like chapter headings to introduce each stage of the narrator's life. It's also nice to see someone taking time over their font and how they format it on the page, as I think it does enhances it, particularly with the use of a smaller font for the single word lines. You write beautifully! :)

Thank you!
My emotions never arrived. Very strong concept around which your poem evolves. You learn to imitate but your soul is fading.

I like the wording, well done.

Why a beautiful curse ?

This has to be the most unique poem I have ever come across. I liked how you inserted the four one-worded titles between the verses. I also liked the rhyme pattern. Well done Britaini
