Never Look Back

Captivated by the rising tide, alone she stood

On a solemn piece of rock. The darkness

Lingered over; correcting her daylight.

Death in its inevitability took the form of ocean.

Amidst the fleeting light, an absence and 

Neglect writhed behind her eyes,

Draining her malevolence, turning it to fear.

A tapestry of thought weaved onto her shoulder,

Lethargy strained through her. Never fighting the

Overpowering desire to sleep. One foot first,

Never look back, for the

End, is here.

    Very cleverly constructed! I don't usually enjoy ACROSTICS 'cos they're so clumsy and obvious... This flows well; cunningly disguised! Best wishes, Keith

    This is a fantastic Acrostic, my new friend! Talented write. Sad contents, and truthful take on that angst one feels at that moment in time. Love Christie
