This is so beautiful and you just shine through this piece! So much happiness and you make me feel this hope & this love here. I really liked how you described yourself but then went on to say "unspoken, unseen, undiscovered".... I still get a feeling that there is much to be express and that love will always find a way to be with you. Uplifting piece, acrostics are a challenge but this flowed flawlessly!

You, painted in repeating patterns
Of words referring to this utter bliss
Unspoken, unseen, undiscovered.
Love the acrostic, it is such an eloquent poem.
You start strongly, 'you keep to yourself' then you add 'mostly' which hints there is strength in character if needed, you will stick up for those you love, you will protect those you care about.
the next two lines point to mind racing, there is so much going on emotionally that you find yourself slightly withdrawn pondering.
I like the irony in the next line, yes you are 'verbally gifted' yet you are struggling to find those words.
'eloquent in my inner monologue'
this to me suggests your are putting on a front, you are hiding the inner feelings to the outside world.
love the comma after 'you' reading the punctuation gives a natural pause here and puts stress on this word almost accusingly.
Was this person your rock? your constant, maybe a little bit crazy?
'utter bliss' this person is acting how you would love to be, they are carefree, They have a way with words.
Love the use of the three 'un' words at the end. You almost shout these as you read them.

You have written a poem to my soul :(, beautifully done. 5/5
This is just a blessing in itself. How you described the feeling love impacts in us is true and very humbling. You told us how this four letter word makes us feel, how it changes our outlook upon its reality on us. A vey distinctive feeling that overwhelms us with a force we can't seem to fathom with.
It exist as an identity to people whom believe in its power and quientessence to change our lives. An entity twirling sensations that cause a lingering crave for sensuality. The most inexplicable element of adore, trust, patience, understanding and devotion.
An element so mundane but hard to keep up with its trials that lurks around us at times. Love so beautiful and natural when experienced with your decreed partner.
A lovely tribute on love, I love it. Thanks for portraying this in its simple nature. You did an exquisite job with this.
You speak to one with your poetry, you make one feel and understand the message you want to pass across. In a very uplifting and inspirational way do you always deliver your musings.
I love this poem. You sort of left it open for readers to figure it out by themselves that it's "I Love You." I would've thought you'd consider titling it, "Three Letter Word" instead, but all the same.
"Verbally gifted, yet lost for words"
I so much love this line because speaks of the nature of love. The feeling of love often interferes with the words of one's mouth. It could increase the amount of words spoken or deprive the mouth of words to say. Such is love.
Ingrid, it is always a pleasure to read your beautiful poems.This one like all the others have a warmth and lovely touch to it.
I've been away for quite sometime and from this first one that I read, I know what to expect from the rest I haven't read yet.Take care my friend.
