My Cross

My Cross

A Poem by Rita L. Sev
"

Playing with forms again

"

Alone

in the

worry

that I cannot set right

all the struggles in the

hearts

of mine

Are my

actions

enough

to show

care, or

is this just

a   cross

  that I bear

Very impressive. One of the best visual layouts of a poem I've seen.

Thank you so much! I appreciate it.
Now how did I miss this poem for so long for you know how much I enjoy doing forms too. Great work here. Your message and the symbol match. I wonder if I can do a cross that has meter, message and rhyme. If I should try it, it would need to be a large one.

This I can not imagine. The details or the lack of details is overbearing.

Hi Rita. A very creative write. Heartfelt and introspective. Thoughtful. Skillfully crafted concrete poetry. Flow is good as is the line to line transition. Nice enjambment. Lovely depth of feeling. I can relate to them. Well penned. Write on!

You're welcome.
Very creative and unique, the form you've gone with here is a perfect fit...it makes me think about how hard it really is to be kind-hearted in a world that tests one's goodwill on an all too regular basis...your sentiments are so simple and yet so deep...I really like this one :)

Lovely form you've given this. For some it's worry, for some it's guilt...for some it's simply a memory...
