​Drown me through the night!

Blow me to the sky!

Your love draws me in,

Closer to your heart,

Your soul and mind.

The senses succumb

while a consciousness lingers.

Sinking through the dark,

futile curses toward heavens

sluggishly fly to no one;

a last reach for life.

Acrostic Tetractys

by willowdot21

Poetry challenge: Tetractys.






Lonely soul

Ended sad life

No more to breath reposed now in quiet death Tragic.


An Acrostic Tetractys. ( had to cheat and add an extra line  to spell silent. )

Running through the tunnel, afraid of my own shadow

I can’t breath  this place is dark and  so narrow.

I hear the river on the other side of the wall

She is whispering  and to me I hear her call.

She’s after me I know, if I trip she’ll catch me as I fall.

She is flowing , flowing  her powers growing, growing

Fingers rippling , rippling reaching out for me

Please don’t let her catch hold of me or I shall never again be free.

Descend : Acrostic poem.

Red winds slash my eyes

Fluid drowns my lungs

I descend into the void.

A Hurried Life

by forgingpaths

The rains come quickly

Worms rush to find higher ground

Drowning in their haste
