Escape To Solace

Energized by your appearance
Seduced by your presence
Captured by your perseverance
Awakened by your caress
Passion aroused with your finesse
Excellence achieved by your experience

Taken by your curiosity
Overwhelmed with your generosity

Surrounding me with perfection
Overpowering me with your protection
Luring me to that special place
Astounding me with your charms
Carrying me in your arms
Escaping to the quantum of solace

Christine Bolton

This was my first attempt at an Acrostic poem. Hope you enjoyed it!

    Love it! I’ve tried that sort of thing, not intending it to be poetry, and have failed miserably. Either I can’t come up with a word, or, even if I do, I can’t keep each line consistently on the subject. You not only stayed on subject (bravo!) but creating the right balance of tension with each line (double bravo)!

      Oh thank you so much Jem. Is that your name? I hate now knowing 😊
      Your kind words of encouragement mean a lot and they are very helpful.
      Have a great weekend!
