Writing 201, Assignment 3: Acrostic – Trust


Another day in the world of WordPress has provided another glorious opportunity to fine tune our art of expression, Writing 201, challenge number 3 is in play. The poetic form we have been given to play with today is “Acrostic”, spelling out a word, or words with the first letters of each line of our poem. The optional devise we can make used of today is the internal rhyme, and finally the prompt. Our poems have the option of addressing the topic trust, in any manner we see fit. This is my contribution. Enjoy!

Momentary truths are tested against forever,

Afflictions of affection, feeding a foul weather.

Summers of sweet escapes and serenading amore,

Quiver in moors, stagnant, stripped of any allure.

Unravelling vales falling, raising a stale wall,

Elaborate tales told, unfold to exhale all.

Roaring flames spasming, eating away the frame,

Attacking the strokes painted by pain of a known name.

Deceit is a small game in the dance of hidden intention,

Evading the truth for gain, only maims future ascension.

  1. Intricate thoughts here. I really enjoyed it. I really like the word Masquerade so you get bonus points for that as well πŸ™‚
    “Afflictions of affection, feeding a foul weather” – great alliteration!

    Okay so don’t hate me but I have a tiny correction…

    “Summers of sweet escapes and serenading amore,
    Quiver in moors, stagnant, stripped of any allure.”

    I think you meant “amour” to rhyme with “allure”. Amore means the same as amour but it’s Italian and would be pronounced a-moe-ray. Amore would work too, given the whole Venetian association but then would break your lovely end-rhyme scheme.
    I’m sorry if I’ve misspoken. :-/

    Keep ’em coming! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, I humbly accept the bonus points on offer. And you have not misspoken at all. I was having that debate with myself. I had no idea which one was the one to use in my piece. After a lot of deliberation, and focus, I picked the wrong one. I know google, in an adjacent tab, would have helped, but I slacked. Thanks for the correction. A quick edit is due here.
