All day and night
I want of you – I
Want so deeply that “want”
Is too trite a word – this
To me, my very breath – is to
Be in this love – to be
Yours and yours only
Forever and a day
What you ask of me, I ignore it all
Yes, I submit easily, but I
Don’t want what you want
This moment is all there is
This is all I want – to
Have you now – to be
Yours and only yours
But only for tonight
dVerse ~ Poets Pub | Poetics: For the love of puzzles . . .
Lillian is hosting Tuesday Poetics at dVerse Poets Pub where she shares her love of how one word leads to another in crossword puzzles and their cousins in style: Acrostic Poetry.
In Word Acrostic poetry the first word or the last word of each line in a single stanza poem spells out a message.
Lillian has created an Acrostic Plus where the first letter of each line in the first stanza spells out one or more words, while the last letter of each line in the next stanza spells out something different, and so on, but together there is one message.
We’re challenged to either write a poem that in some way relates to a puzzle, includes the word “puzzle”; or try our hand at an Acrostic poem. I combine a Word Acrostic with Lillian’s Acrostic Plus to tell a familiar tale of Mars and Venus,
They both want different things. 😦 That’s kind of sad. Well written, though!
This could be about a couple but I see it as a struggle within the self. Do I want that person to be Mr. Right or Mr. Right Now, and do my actions match up with whatever the needs of my contribution to the relationship? Then double it for the other person. It’s no wonder that relationships are messy and complicated 😦
A very insightful acrostic, Raivenne, into the complications encountered when wooing! Beautifully written 🙂
“To be yours and only yours / but only for tonight.” WOW. those lines are AMAZING.
This is stunning, especially when both people want different things. You communicate that evocatively.
… only for tonight. Those three words have immense implication! Well done.
A complicated relationship for sure! Very well written.
Typical he said/she said! Very clever write.
stunning & ingenious, Raivenne!
I love it… though it might be a perfect match when one says forever and the other cannot see beyond tonight.
How passionate and romantic this is…with a catch. Enjoyed your hidden message.
This is incredibly sensuous, Raivenne 💝💝 I so love how you have worked the hidden message here … really beautiful job done.
I love how you adapted the acrostic and crossword puzzle idea into this format.
Ah yes, two sides indeed. One wants forever and one wants for just tonight. You’ve made it seem quite romantic either way….hidden message works well here.
