5 Steps into Insanity
  Tears fall down my face
they flow freely now
I cant let the thought leave
the thought that love is so demanding

-love is a crazy thing-

,dnim ym otni gnikaerB
.htmraw yb dednuorrus si dlrow
,enif smees gnihtyrevE
eb ot hsiw i woh hO

-gniht yzarc a si evol-

its demanding and hurtful
it makes the tears flow
the tears are stopping
because of a new light

-love is a crazy thing-

,yks eht ot gnihcaeR
reverof smees efil
sdoulc eht psarg ot gniyrt
eb ot hsiw i woh hO

-gniht yzarc a si evol-

the light I saw when
I looked in your eyes
it dried my tears
my heart is mending

-love is a crazy thing-

,won kaew gniworG
eud tsap gnikcit si kcolc
ezeerf emit ekam gniyrt
...eb ot hsiw i woh hO

-gniht yzarc a si evol-

Just go away and don't look back

-love is a crazy thing-

.uoy ot txen eb ot hsiw i woh hO

I evol ti! Just like lindsay said, it is so unique. I see you used the repetetive phrase. Glad to have an example of your work demonstrating it.

tahT tsum evah neeb yrev drah! Using a medium like backwards writing demands a lot from a reader. Most writers should be more demanding. Reading ought to always be fun, but that doesn't mean it should always be easy. Good work.

This is very unique. As much as the words being backwards create the vast spectrum of the emotions of love so do your word choices. I am impressed.

Synopsis
This poem was more of a project. In this poem i am trying to make the impossible possible. As i want my reader to think the person who is in this poem is slowly being torn apart mentally. the stanza's written in regular are supposed to be sad and depressing thoughts about love, while the stanza's written backwards are supposed to be lusting and desirable thoughts!! The focus to this, is to simply get the reader to think this person has split personalities due to love! Please comment and tell me what you get
