I like the mixture you have put into this acrostic and the layout - it took some time to figure out it was an acrostic and what more the visuals a d word play makes it...interesting. Congrats on the win!
Quite the alliterative acrostic you've got here. ;)
Not sure if I'm able to interpret the poem correctly as there seems to be quite some ambiguity.. But the adjectives of conflict make me feel like there is a heavy struggle going on. Perhaps one of mental entrapment, fighting one's demons?
I agree with MaryAnne that some spaces feel crowded and force you into more abstract wording, although I do appreciate a bit of symbolism here and there.. Untangling the riddle so to speak. My favourite line was probably "Wrapped within wounded wishes", kind of simple but vividly strong.
"abstract wording" So true! I do get carried away because I love surrealism..
I wish my English would be better so I could express exactly what I want to say...
Thank you for taking the time and read/comment ..
Hi and thanks for swinging by at my poem, The hardest part for me was to keep a logical flow between lines... I love to use adverbs/adjectives and I love to give a surreal feel to most of my poems...
Thanks again for reading me..!
