Staggering out at sea,
Independent soul,
Like king of the waves,
Other woeful times

by the deep blue.

An acrostic, using the word 'Sailboat',

This is a really good poem. I love how the last line finishes off the acrostic poem and can also follow after sailboat.

I love how you break the rhythm at the end. I also love the disequilibrium in the editing style! Keep it up!

I like the way this is designed and written, especially the final sentence and the way it breaks the mold of the rest of the poem.

Short, yet amazing. I love the last line at the end outside the acrostic part it makes it very powerful :)

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable. -Bruce Lee

That was awesome ;o
