Winter Acrostic

Wind and frost have come to bite our noses while 
Images of glistening snow sparkle in the moonlight.
Nights in this valley have brought us a taste of heaven,
Tranquil scenes we see while taking our evening stroll.
Everyone in their houses getting ready for evening in silence,
Reaching home we cuddle drinking cocoa by the fireplace enjoying winter.

So Sweet

Since you came into my life, I can tell you true
Only pleasing you is all I want to do!

Sugar I’ll be giving you every day and night.
When you waken, I will greet you with my sweet delight.
Embracing you, I’ll be your minX, eXactly what you need.
Enjoyment, like chocolates in a boX I’ll give to please
The man I love. Honey, just relaX; eXpect lots and lots of these!

The Sun Rises- -The Moon Sets

These were set in motion from the beginning of time.
Heavens abound in each of their glory, power sublime.
Every excursion that they set upon revolves in rhyme.

Solar orb that secures life upon this planet we dwell.
Universally seen around our globe, for all to tell,
Never tiring it revolves, captured within its cell.

Rising up from its core, flares of powerful streams.
I respect what has risen from the sunny beams.
Sharing the glory that it has upon everyone, it seems.
Evident by the life that it supports even in dreams,
Solar star of daylight hours continue as nature deems.

Till nightfall approaches while another completes the set.
Helping to guide travelers for centuries the positions to get,
Evening ignites different phases upon this satellites debt.

Monthly revolutions of this celestial body sway the hours.
Orbital bliss has spoken richly along with romantic flowers.
Opening souls in sensuality and fulfilling romantic powers.
New moon to which many have fell into its magical showers.

Splendor of the night as it falls to set upon the new dawns light.
Exemplary versions follow a pattern, which marvels natural sight.
Take notice of what you may be missing each upcoming night.
Said, I’ve heard, old sailors delight, shining, enchantingly bright.

Whatever It Takes

When two choose each the other
Having decided this, their fate
A bond, a pledge, a vow replaces
That which, unchosen, cannot wait
Even when it requires a warrior resolute,
Vitality deathless, and sacrifice continuous,
Eternal must the pledge be, or
Risk betrayal's scourge sinuous.

It is at the pit, against the fiery horde
That Absalom dulls the finest sword

This is what it takes to stand at my side
Antagony to injustice is my cause
Knell my soul to abandon,  divide
Eidetically my failure would resound, preside
Sorcerous dreams expounding my flaws.

Indebted to peace, yet still facing war
Soliloquy sweet, punished yet more.

When the lashes pernicious slander my spirit
Have you the stamina to fight weaponless, naked?
Ardently ask the goddess Irit
That throughout the nightmare, you survive unwakéd?

Impassioned, immortal, immoderate, rhetorical

Would you, could you, if so, should you?
Illusion or real, my fight is defense
Leave destruction behind 
Lose selfish pretense

Give willingly blood to the unjust blow
Impatiently wait the night for the dawn
Vicious dark creatures attack love's glow
Effervescent, they dissolve at the light, and pass on.

Because violence feeds violence, and hate cannot withstand love's rapture.

Love Is a Four Letter Word

Look in your eyes unveils a smoldering ember that could make Gibraltar crumble.
One in a million heart that magically kindles fire without matches. Nothing...
Ventured, nothing gained in this rewarding game of love; a four letter word that
Emanates such sweet ecstasy. And no, I don't mean the drug

Never, Always, Sometimes

"Never, Always, Sometimes"

Never will I ever bring you pain
Even if you won't promise the same
Virtuously, your Love reigns
Eric's heart without any shame
Reviving Love just to keep me sane

Always my heart will rest in your hands
Love has been provided for this man
Warm memories outnumber a beach's grains of sand
All because it is in His Plan
Your Beauty is perfect so please understand
Sensual nights will be our routine's brand

Sometimes I wonder how such a Blessing has been bestowed upon me
Observing your actions makes this feel like destiny
Maybe I am just that lucky, you make my Soul feel free
Every morning I arise, in unison is where our lips be
Tales of such Love have caused so many to see
In due time, we must all pay the fee
Making Life worth Living for True Love will never flee
Equal trust is firmly established, the most important key
Saving this man from myself, and for that, I thank thee

Bath for Two

B lindfolded he leads her down the hall,
A nticipation makes her start to giggle.
T here he lets her dress slide slipping to the floor,
H anding her a red rose he removes the blindfold.

F ascination shows in her excited face,
O ver the floor is a carpet of rose petals,
R ed candles have turned the washroom into a spa.

T he scent of perfumed water fills their senses,
W ater spills as he draws her into the tub.
O ne heart and one soul become one.

Love is All

L ove is everything to me
O nly people don’t seem to see
V oices from the inner regions
E arnestly telling us to simply care 
I nside messages we cannot recognize
S tymied by years of ignorance and greed
A mazing dreams if we could but see
L inked into love through past lives unknown
L et the light shine through to a mind at peace

Joy is the eye that longs for me and waits
Only me as the clock ticks and leaves spiral
A heart which bursts when she releases her  ponytail
Never to be mine
Never to be mine
And I search for you while I'm at rest

Joining the line of the fallen
On the spot I wait to be chosen
And my heart , empty and dormant  
Never to be warm
Never to be warm
And the glorious sun radiates off your laughter

Just one, till your eyes land on me again
One glance and pick me as a garment casually left
Asking God for one chance to be in your heart
Never  a pulse without me
Never a pulse without me
And your hair touches my face

Women are priceless treasures

W omen are priceless treasures only mined with the loveliest tool of a caring heart
O ptimism is defined in their ingenuity with a worth irreplaceable as life
M en becomes helpless babes without cleaving to them in their lonely life journeys
E arth becomes lifeless without their wombs bearing fruit
N eed is no necessity without their hands’ industry of excellence

A ngels they are but without wings
R evolutionary to the core but lenient in their touch
E motions best dictionary the world has ever discovered

P ain is told and subdued by them even in the pangs of childbirth 
R est is ensured by them even in times of terror
I deas are not only dreams to these treasures as they turn houses into homes
C hildren are sheltered in them for nine months without paying any rent or utilities
E nthusiastic of a kite flying against the tide is their vision for distinction 
L oyalty is their hallmark as their fragility is ruined with their lovers’ betrayal
E ndless is their love when respected and refined with tender loving care 
S easoned in their preserved taste, a blend of sugar and salt
S ervice is their trounce against society’s challenges
T alented to cook in the kitchen and rule in government
R iches are discovered only by the wise 
E xperienced in the times and seasons of life
A spiring to the horizon with hopes that can touch the seat of God
S ensitive to perceive a needle fall or ticking clock
U nderstandable to the desires of crying of babies or the kisses of fathers
R eachable notwithstanding distance or difficulty
E ducators in their natural state, turning crawling babies into running heroes
S pecial in their makeup, priceless as treasures

All our friends are gathered

Vows are exchanged
As we profess our
Love on Valentine’s Day
Everyone smiles as we share a tender kiss
Now we begin our married life
Together forever until death do us part
I love you so much my darling
Never dreamed I could be so blissfully happy
Each moment with you is so special

Wedding bells are ringing
Everyone files out of the church
Don’t we look a picture as we pose for the photographs
Dressed to perfection for our wonderful wedding day
I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you
Now I have your ring on my finger
Getting wed on Valentines Day is a perfect declaration of our love

So much obscurity with no sign of light.                               
     Hope begs the question is there help in sight?         
Past, present, and future are mangled in time. 
     Enters the Captain - buckle-up for flight.
Across the universe, passage bought for a dime. 
     A countdown begins; it’s the end of the line… 
Cashing-in what is left of my mind, 
     Ready to reschedule this mission of mine.
Envy my trip but heed the sign: 
     The SPACE around his HEART is dark and sublime.

Magnolia: Sweet Tradition

Married under a lavish evergreen canopy,
aromatic blooms filled the evening air.
Grand was our cathedral of open sky.
Newlyweds kissed
on the twenty forth of May (your grandparents' anniversary).
Lying above us on an old lower limb:
initials side by side, theirs and ours,
artistically carved by him and you, many years apart.

Sweet bridal bouquet of magnolias you cut.
When as your grandfather's tradition to your grandmother,
each twenty forth of May, she and I received a bouquet.
Even after his death you carried on for both of us, then to her grave.
That tree bloomed two lifetimes of bouquets, both bitter and sweet.

Then we parted.... Went our separate ways.
Reality sometimes overshadows romanticism,
although true love never dies.
Deep in our hearts the magnolia still blooms.
I missed you as much as you missed me, those eleven years,
till one day the sun stepped up on my porch.
I knew when I looked in your eyes and felt your embrace,
On the twenty forth of may, I'll receive a bouquet.
Never again will we part.

Since the first time I lay my heart's eyes on you,
Oration of my love story began; we became the main characters
United together in warm, obsessing passion. Energy we create can
Light a city; ahhh.....yes, an energy created by pulsation of our heart-beats.
My mind always thinks about you; every
Atom that makes who you are is like a star in the night sky. As a hobby, sky-gazing
Transformed to gazing in your eyes, to get a glimpse of the stars of
Every character, beauty, and charm that defines you.

It's you tha I see every now and then
Not even aware of your existence

That somehow I will fall for you
How come I didn't know that it was you
Even before I fall in love with you

Many chances had passed between us
Over and over again like a deja vu
Oh my, am I so silly for not knowing it at once
Don't know better than my heart does

For  since then, I never felt like this before
Only you can make me feel brand new
Roaring like lion my heart boom!

Loving you makes me in the mood for love again
Oh, how long I've waited it
Verily I say, thanks for this day
Even though, it takes time for me and you

Awaiting it for a long time, I feel no regret
GOD gives us time to be together
Alas! I waste it no more
I hold and cherish it forever
Now that the chance is ours....

Your loveliness-Acrostic

L ost in the labyrinth of your loveliness
O bscured obstacles can never obstruct my
V ision of your elegance and graciousness
E ffortlessly effusing and enlightening and 
L iberating my mind, inspiring my heart and soul
I ntuitively knowing and satiating my every desire
N eed and want, emancipating negativity and
E liminating all disillusioned and disquieting thoughts
S plendidly sophisticated in your stunning simplicity
S oftly and silently satisfying my spirit and soul.

Romancing You

Reaching up to whisper in your ear
Owning up with words that you are dear
Mesmerizing you with lover's grace
Artfully exploring your sweet face
Nearly fainting there in your strong arms
Clearly feeling all your manly charms
Idolizing you in moonlit glow
Naming all the dreams that you must know
Getting nearer now for tasty kiss

Yearning now to be immersed in bliss
Opening my heart and soul to you
Uttering devotion, Love, for YOU!

B eauteous bewitching botanical gardens in the early morn
R ivers rhythmically running, as we race to adorn
E verlasting earthly echoes, the beauty that is shown
A bundant acoustical atmospheres playing heavens tone
T imeless tall trees that titillate the aromatic air
H oofing hormonal horses mating their scented mare
T ropical topless tanning on the island of the blue lagoon
A lphabetical ascending acrostic’s that sing to the moon
K ookie kinky kisses that I shall receive from you
I mpulsive inviting incantations in our lovers brew
N aughty nightly nightgowns of witch you will undress
G orgeous genital gestures, that I shall soon caress.

My Companion

She's like the essence of variety.
Her ability to inspire me
taste like passion when she says "Hi" to me.
She'll never lie to me.
Cause she's truth.
She's love like a harsh lesson
and more precious than a subtle blessing.
Constantly testing my sanity like a harsh whisper...
And unlike fear... her sister
I kissed her and never knew lonliness
cause this...
was not an option
after adoption of her promise
She's my companion and like my heart
we were made to be together
She is forever and to sever us... is death.
Like breath without her there's no me left.
Life... my wife... my existence
I'm so deeply in love with you
Pain... I insist this

Bridge Over Troubled Water

If you want me to care
You will have to share.
Need someone to love.
A heart for your glove,
Friend with some flare,
I’m the one, which is true.
Sailing across the ocean blue,
Right before your eyes,
Behind your path, below the skies,
Like a forever friend you know.
A guardian with special glow,
Bridge not me before my start.
Over previously broken heart,
Troubled days and nights are gone.
Water washes your heart at dawn.
I want you to believe my words.
Will you listen to singing birds?
Ease all the ills of your soul.
Your heart is my only goal.
Mind not, my passion will console.

Beautiful Bouquet Of Red Roses -The Acrostic Style

~Beautiful Bouquet Of Red Roses~

Beautiful bouquet of vibrant very lovely red roses
Elegant fragrant they're a gift from God above
A most romantic enchantingly soft delicate flower so very
Unique and beautiful in every single way
Their permeating perfume is truly a delight to my heart
Indeed their powerful presence is a bright sight to my eyes
Find them in a diverse array of colors, hues and names and all
Under a ton of their very exuberant unconcealed mythical celebrated charm and the
List of their endless variety just goes on and on

Roses are my very favorite flowers of all of them out there and
On  this I can always honestly swear
Since they truly just amaze me  and
Enthrall  all of my heart and senses with all their unique loveliness and pure beauty.

Author's Notes:

An "Acrostic" is a poem or other form of writing in which the first letter, syllable or word of each line, paragraph or other recurring feature in the text spells out a word or a message. The word comes from the French "acrostiche" from post-classical Latin acrostichis.

Passion Is My Middle Name

A lasting flame, ignites my senses. Your measured strokes
S teadily calm my screaming desires. Your massage
S oothes aching muscles...you follow with a barrage
I ntense of seductive touch. Stimulate with your every move.
O verpower me and I submit willingly with nothing to prove
N ow or ever...comfortable in our own skins our own looks.
A lways as one even lying apart reading separate books.
T his confidence we share...revel in the thought of you and me
E ternally swimming safe in the depths of our own private sea.

It seems to me,
Since you lay right here.
I thought we’d be,
Till you disappeared.

A lighthouse sunk to the sea,
In the dark of the night.
With no light to guide me to you,
Ill drift here,
Till I can set sail again,
or forever fall at the edge of your reef.
