Murder in the dark [Acrostic]

by Infected with His Deadly Love   May 13, 2007

Maliciously and silently, I plan it all
Under the moonlight, no one knows
Reaching for the sharpened knife
Dripping with blood, as I
Engrave my note into my skin
Revising what to write

I'll die here tonight, with blood all around
Not regretting anything that I am doing

Tears form as I finish it off
Here in my skin, my note lays
Ending my life, I'm not going to stay

Deeper and deeper, the knife goes
Anger is pouring out of me
Ripping it all out of me
Killing me softly, my murder in the dark

Acrostic Poetry is where the first letter of each line spells a word, usually using the same

    "Maliciously and silently, I plan it all"

    Heh. The opening line made me smirk for drawing my attention into it immediately. It reminded me of a little villain that I dearly adored in my dark-ish fictional reads. The idea was fine, although I slightly agree with Mr. Robert. You've created a momentum at the start, but it suddenly died out for...unknown reasons...Hmm Anyway, I loved how this poem was finely written with a rather fluidlike flow. (You have my props for that.) My pleasure to read. I love it! Keep them coming, Hippo! Love, Tiger

    Excellent poem, I'm working on a similar format poem...not same topic, but same format idea. I like the language and imagery you invoke in your words, but hopefully you don't feel this way in reality. Nonetheless, great work!
