Evening’s sultry skyline forge
Neglecting imminence of graphite gown
Devoured brass and copper ores
Exhaling candent ingots onto downtown
And when the density of gloom let out
Vapors and blues like midnight hour hunters
Onward it led me through hasteless walkabout,
Reflected and shone on in city lanterns
Fear of the unknown is on a mind
accepting feelings that were caught
leaking into uncharted zones
lasting a lifetime within a moment
intentionally bound to relive the hurt
neglecting wounds that haven't healed  
greatly intensifies the gravity of this
Acrostic poem  (fallings )
Monochrome sphere
cyclOptic gaze
Opalescent pearl
sentinel of Night
No I will not write a poem
Obviously I will not
There’s no way anyone can make me
How come people keep trying
I know their efforts will fail
No matter how hard they try to
Great, now I’ve written a poem
Ron Conway Sep 21
Pick anyone's incised name
Ordinance finds the evening near
Vague expressions illicit little sympathy
Equally valuing each reeking yesterday
Reaping earnest adjustments - limits in the yoke
Tender honour always takes sacrifice
Yet our unconsciousness reigns supreme
Pain often veils every reality that's yours
Vertical and horizontal acrostic

Autumn is a subtle thief
Moseying in then out so brief
A swift taker of all things emerald and bright
No burglar alarm will keep safe the light
Daring to steal the warmth off your face
A cold Winter the only item left in Summer's place
This is my first poem for the 30 Day Poetry Challenge
An acrostic using the letters in your first name. Can be about anything EXCEPT you or your name.
Do you understand
All of this is your fault
Vindication is all that I want
Except you’re still on my mind
Filling my head in every space for thoughts
Unexpectedly is how this started
Curiosity sparked an interest
Killing me as it lingers
Implicating me in guilt
Nothing can cure this conscious of mine
Going down with every thought
Suspiciously I clear my mind
Pencils and pens create my thoughts
Illustrated with curves that turn to letters
Variety that turns to words
Every one has a meaning and place
Yet I let them remain nameless

i tend to overthink everything

like why do we talk differently then before, yet feel the same?
or can i ever become bothersome enough that some
***** can swoop in and take you away?
eventually i'll grow out of all of this

you're the best thing to have happened to me and i expect
open arms when we meet up
unless you'll decide on a kiss

When our reason draws so clearly
And not be embellished
Slipping tripping reckless under nights green, blue undulations
Time tumbling in motion  
Everyone's hopes are shaken
Delivering our moments in nagging instances of now

Acrostic: Words can be strung but Time has dominion
Ron Conway Sep 11
Evoking visions earth removed
Mind in numb defence falls upon love
Obediently facing
The heavens eternal
Imitating; never seeing a naked imperfection that yesterday
Offered falsehoods
Never understanding and never can escape
This is a double acrostic reading vertically and horizontally
"Ever mindful of the insanity of nuance"
