Wistful: characterized by melancholy; longing; yearning for something one knows will never have

Wishes are never horses, making beggars be less cheerful
Increased interest to the unreachable despite being careful
Subjects, condemns and stimulates one to be less grateful
The moment shortens the stretched hands and makes nothing wonderful
Feelings fiercely negative, make the coveted powerful
Unidirectional is the attempt which feels unlawful
Loving someone who will never love back, shows life is half full

Hello Fumon, loving someone that does not love back, hurts the other person. Have a nice evening my friend.

Hi Funom, I haven't written any poems in Acrostic, but I am so impressed with yours and the powerful meaning behind Wistful. A beautiful poem Funom, love can hurt if it is not returned in kind, but does and will again cross your path when you least expect it! Best Wishes, Jennifer.

I am impressed with your command of Acrostic, what a long list of 'brain-teasers' you have created. I read a few, and like this one, they are deep and thought provoking. I think you've well written more than anyone else I know. Poetry hugs ... CayCay

Hello Funom!! I must say my old friend, this is a quite wondrous Acrostic in every respect, with seven palpable and powerful messages rendered from your verses spelling "Wistful" as the poem unfolds. I liked this one very much!! A FAVE TOO!! Cheers and Best, Gary

Reaching for the unattainable, especially where love is concerned, could lead to pain and sadness. Indeed, as you well say, life can never be full. This acrostic in monorhyme for is worthy of praise, Funom. // paul

Wishes are tiny dreams reaching for the unreachable. Sometimes, these wishes come true. My heart rejoices knowing this fact. "Loving someone who will never love back, shows life is half full" This thought truly touches my heart. This is beautiful and emotional, all at the same time. ~ Brandy

Funom, not only Acrostic, but also Monorhyme, awesome work. Life is so hard on some people, but if you have faith and the love of God they will have everything even if they have not much.Have a Merry Christmas to you and yours... hugs Eve~`*

Thank you so much Eve, I named my subsequent acrostics as monorhymes to honour your observation.
