Cross My Heart

Come to the
River
Of my 
Soulful
Sentiments

Meandering silently
Yearning for release.

Hasten
Earnestly
As my love flows by
Rushing through the flood-gates
To your heart.

"Rushing through the floodgate to your heart" is an awesome line, Paul. Love that the acrostic did not distract from the flow of the poem as a whole. A beauty. 7. hugs

Dear Paul, The requirements of an acrostic take second place to the wonderful feelings you express in "Cross My Heart".//7// Hugs, Julia

I think, to cross the river of your heart would be a pleasant journey for anyone to take, my friend.... This is a beautifully written acrostic poem. I enjoyed the play on words and your use of metaphor. Lovely work, Paul!

I love this Paul, just an amazing acrostic and it is amazing how few words you used. As poets it is always our job to write on the head of a pin.

Thank you Maurice. I suppose by now it is common knowledge that, when writing, I prefer short poems to long ones. When I venture on long writes my attention and concentration tend to disintegrate. // paul

Wow, Paul... very, very nice! Your first stanza is pure gold. And of course I've always loved the word 'meandering' :) I've noticed a lot of people, when writing acrostics, put a space between the first and second letter so that the title pops out. If I'm being honest it's slightly distracting from the poem itself... of course this is just my opinion... not a criticism!

So glad you enjoyed this poem, Timothy. Also, I love it when I get such feedback with insightful comments. I agree with you...that space is distracting; usually, when print publishing, I avoid it and instead print the first letter bold, in order to bring the readers' attention to the fact that it's an acrostic. cheers. // paul

Great Acrostic Paul. So much beauty. I love the first 7 words. Come to the river of my soul. Ok 61/2. That line is killing me I love it so much. P.S. the other 21 1/2 are great too.
