S orrow and grief,
A ppear in your hearts.
D ead is the light,
N ow fading from every face.
E ntering the world slowly,
S uddenly it takes over,
S preading darkness across the bright sky.

    A beautiful Acrostic Maryam. It is an amazing write. Sorrow and grief spreading darkness across the bright sky.Your poem made me recall the work of an early nineteenth century poet whose poem will live eternally. You have a way with words that enchant the reader. Happy New Year. -Mohammad

    You describe grief quite well in this one. Good use of the challenging acrostic form. I'm wondering if there is an extra t in the first word of the 5th line. Keep on writing. Thank you for your kind words on my poem. Happy 4th! Karen
