Shake the fading feelings from Hands still refusing to let go Forever remember lingering kisses Cancel urges that no longer serve All the while staying strong Our only mistake was the taking of Vows made in haste
Laura us hosting D’Verse Poets tonight. She has prompted us as follows:
Choose ONE of the lines below and write a stanza(s) taking each word as the start of each successive line i.e. the first word begins the first line, the second begins the second and so on. Basically, we are taking the horizontal line and making it vertical- its vaguely acrostic and I’m not sure if this form has a given name.
Since there’s no help, come let us kiss and part Shake hands for ever, cancel all our vows By freezing passion at its blossoming I guard her beauty clean from rust Quail from your downward darting kiss
