Persistance

d’Verse Poets Pub – Poetics: For the love of puzzles . . .
Wow, this was some challenge, Lillian!

Persistance

proving the existence of
a dark, hidden planet is
like trying to puzzle the soft
essence of your heart
moving aside the hard parts formed
over years of heartache and climbing
obstacles you have planted to dash all
new pathfinders

but I will carry on, from
dawn to end of day
searching for a crack, some sign of
yielding to the tender
impulses hidden behind an alkali-
like reaction that keeps you safe
from the acidic touches you have known
until my heart can teach yours its gentle creed

— pale moon,
my friend

  1. I love this! You’ve achieved the acrostic plus so very well….the sense of the poem hides the form. And the message is indeed, as Sanaa writes, gorgeous! The ending, these words “until my heart can teach yours its gentle creed” brought an audible sigh from me!
