Broken Chains

So today's going to be the first day of my one-week project.  Like I mentioned 
the other day, I'm going to pick the poetry form for today.  If you guys want to 
suggest one for tomorrow, let me know in the comment box!  The sites I'm 
using are here and here.  My only rules are that I won't do a Ballad (have 
you ever read Beowulf? The idea of writing that is terrifying!), and I won't do the same form twice.  So anyways, here's today's form.

Etheree - consists of 10 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 syllables.  
Etheree can also be reversed and written 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

like the chains he'd held so tightly
had finally broken, after so long.
For perhaps the first time,
in what seemed like
her entire life,
she can
