Circadian ~ Acrostic XII

Maidenhair Fern

orning sunlight is the visual canvas

rt of fronds in greens and golds

ridescence brushes each surface

rawing Bruges-like shadows

merald embroidery in the air

ature outside may slumber

ere in the warmth of my home

iry pinna capture the essence

n feathery greenery that whispers

eturn she will, keep faith

or this is the joy of the indoor garden

veryday magick is the Circadian

eminding that summer is just out of sight

N o further than The Wheel’s revolution

OctPoWriMo 2015 ~ Challenged ~ Day One Drivel

razy! Shouts my lazy Muse

arried by my rash participation

A lready I’m placating the tyrant

onging for a perfect phrase

iquor might help but not this early in the day

ither I shall sink or swim

o going back now

ods of Poetry help me endure this thirty day torture

E levate my drivel and doggerel and hear this

aily mantra for this month of October

Tender Is The Night ~ Acrostic X

Through new eyes I see you
Enigma of my dreams
Nearer to me than ever
Drawing me in further
Entranced it seems
Revealed in touch anew

Intensity impossible to capture in words
Silken kisses, satin skin, velvet hardness

This is how you beguile me again
Held in your strong arms
Essence and ecstasy suffuse my core

Now in the crucible of our joining
Iridescent desire paints my mind
Glazing us in heat and hunger
He is my heart’s hunter
Tenderly tearing me apart

Cirocumulus ~ Acrostic IX

Clear And Vision Unlimited

Iridescent sunbeams radiating

Reflections of precious gems

Opal and moonstone

Contained in a jewel box of sky

Under sapphire canopy

Morning light transformed

Undulating with each invisible breeze

Like a whisper of cerulean silk

Upon Nephele’s milky breast

Sweet summer sky

Replenish ~ Acrostic VI

Restore in me what I’m craving

Echoes and dreams don’t satisfy

Paths diverging and converging

Life moves we two just like the tide

Ever drawn back to your shore

Now as then, I’m craving more

Invoking your memory of my charms

Save my heart from this arid wasteland

Home is waiting for you in my arms

Enigma ~ Acrostic V

Ever am I enticed by your advance and retreat

New again, this old dance of ours so sweet

Intrigued that your heart is now to me returned

Guarding my own against that for which I’ve yearned

Me, entranced and on my knees

And you, the riddle inside a mystery

Spiritual ~ Reverse Acrostic Two

SPIRITUAL

A connectedness between our soulS
Your light and colours have lifted me uP
There is a fey magick between you and I
In the way our minds reach for one anotheR
As though a wish made was granted by a DjinnI
That a piece of ourselves we thought was losT
Could be found again in this sacred XanadU
I’ve yet to hold you in my arms my beautiful AlphA
But I count in heartbeats mere days now until I wilL

This is Reversed Acrostic. The last letter of each line spells a word.

Belladonna ~ Reverse Acrostic One

We Drink Because We’re Poets – POETRY PROMPT #6 – REVERSE ACROSTIC

Description of this week’s prompt from the blog:

Hello everyone!

This week I planned a slightly more challenging prompt to stir and spin your muse. Without further delay, here is what we will be writing this week:

This week’s prompt is the Reversed Acrostic. The trick? Your reverse acrostic should spell out 1 or a combination of these words:

shipwreck, cathedral, sunshine, belladona, amphitheater, charisma

BELLADONNA

Beware the offer of Naughty Man’s Cherries, lest it be you succumB
Clipping the plait The Fates have made before your time has comE
Atropos’ blade cannot be stayed, should your appetite make you ilL
Though she be beautiful, you must resist and use your force of wilL
Berries dark and sweet to the tongue does offer BelladonnA
She’ll tempt you with sweet visions but you’ll soon be out of your heaD
Nightshade with just a single leaf is sure to strike you down and sO
As you celebrate on this the night of the Red Blood MooN
And though the auspicious hour of the eclipse is upon us anoN
Toast her beauty with a glass of mead and forgo that temptress BelladonnA

Gaslighter ~ Acrostic IV

NaPoWriMo Blog Button

 

 

 

Gaslighter

Greasepaint of a different hue
All about him and not about you
Slip into character ready or not
Living all the twists in his devious plot
Into his self-aggrandizing script you’ll be written
Gasping as his rewrites leave your head spinning
Has he made you the star of this little show
There are more special effects than you could know
Extras on his casting couch abound
Replacing you in an instant for his next go round

Paula Alquist Anton: If I were not mad, I could have helped you. Whatever you had done, I could have pitied and protected you. But because I am mad, I hate you. Because I am mad, I have betrayed you. And because I'm mad, I'm rejoicing in my heart, without a shred of pity, without a shred of regret, watching you go with glory in my heart!

The term “Gaslighting” stems from the use of them as a weapon in this old MGM classic film noir.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder

NPD is a very real personality disorder. It isn’t “just” vanity, big ego or benign delusions that can be fixed by a partner or spouse. It is highly destructive and cannot be changed, regardless of anything you do. I was not aware of the difference, in fact, had no idea that NPD existed. Discovering this, putting a name to it, having a frame of reference for the actions and most importantly, knowing that NPD has a predatory aspect, has turned on a light in my life.

These people are out there. They walk and talk just like us, on the surface and they may present in a very pretty package but they are not what they seem. Learn the signs and markers.

*Duly noted that there are male and female Narcissists. I am writing about my experience, not in generalities.*

Narcissist ~ Acrostic III

Narcissist

No compassion has he, nor understanding
Accountability shirked, always grandstanding
Rages and threats used as controls and tests
Concocting fantasies about life, love and success
Insinuating the worst about my actions and being
Suspicious of everyone I see,  everything I’m doing
Sugar sweet, so sexy, he sets the bait
Indignant when asked to reciprocate
Subterfuge he’s raised to the highest art
Twisting me to his ways, breaking my heart
