The Gradual Loss of Me
A slight twist on a vilanelle published at Every Day Poets.
I wrote this as part of the Open University’s A363 Advanced Creative Writing course. It was inspired by the idea that as I wasn’t having much time to write I was losing myself. I found the form made this a far more depressing poem by cycling into a downward spiral. But don’t worry the character is fictional.
