Missing (acrostic and palindrome)

by Dark Secrets   Sep 13, 2011

Memory knelling and gnawing
internally trilling wave's nestled
Seared hole dormant interminably
seeking unknown stopple
inevitably unbridling sinfully
Nostalgia is severely ignited
greatly yowling hails misery

- Apt to look for the fallen tooth of spring -

Misery hails, yowling greatly
ignited severely is nostalgia
sinfully unbridling inevitably
Stopple unknown seeking
interminably dormant hole seared
Nestled wave's trilling internally
gnawing and knelling memory

    You pulled off an acrostic and a palindrome with one piece. Quite an accomplishment you've got here. And the piece in itself is composed very well.

    Gee...I am awestruck, lol. It is so hard to write a Palindrome and you pulled it off and even made both stanzas into acrostics, and included all those words!

    Very well done:)

    5/5 Ingrid
