You spell me backwards

You spell me backwards
though I am no Alexandrine
and you remain unread.

We go unchanged in our chains
under these bridges in our brains
but we cannot fail to understand.

I cannot wake up
or speak or die or live or remain here
or anywhere.

Speak me forward
or not at all and I’ll keep your secret
safe and unsolved.
