Return To Me - anacrostic

Quicken, I beseech thee, my languished loveR!
Comfort my mourning heart with hastE.
Melt like summer sweat upon my breasT.
Wick of my lantern, again sparkest thoU?
Let doting lines gush from our hearts foreveR.
Call open the renowned regal curtaiN.

Let us savor ambrosia lips like a costly treaT.
Play me with passion like a prodigy on pianO.

Cast thy smile upon my body like a sun BeaM.
Revive thy marble eyes and marvel at lovE!

Marvelous poetry. I'm not keen on my acrostics which I always deleted. Would never be able an anacrostic. Well done.

Thanks, Victor. Oh, you could. It would just take time and concentration. Also sometimes the muse is there and sometimes not. I need to try more structured rhyming forms, but right now I'm not feeling it.

This is so well done, that's what I love is an acrostic that doesn't feel or sound like an acrostic. I would love it Juliet, if you enter my acrostic contest!

That's really kind of you, John. I intend to try to write one for your contest, and hopefully it will come together. I want you to write for my contest as well.

Thanks, Sandra. This was inspired by Brian Stand's blog challenge anacrostic poem. It's way harder than a regular acrostic. Most people don't think in terms of word endings. I wanted the reversal to signify reversing time. Poetic hugs.
