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.

Moon taught me to be a gentle light in subtle darkness.

Subtle looks
And subtle sights
A hard right hook
In the dark of night
A slanted crook
Without the pleasure
Adjustment is
Without good measure
I am unafraid
But I fear anyways
Self doubt that clouds
Beautiful moments
Voice and thoughts
And roaming composure
I never was one
For random exposure
Leering obstacles
That never made sense
**** burning bridges
When you can Build a fence
Stretch and grow
And seeds shall sew
And if we never ask
We will surely never know
Failure is sacrificed
For glory and light
Forget the screams
That succumb the night
Circumstance wrestled
With hasty thought
And now there’s new lessons
To be taught
Take what you will
And write what you know
All that can happen
is maybe you’ll grow x

I’m noones best friend.

I know so many people that I dearly love and consider my friends,

but there’s too many of the ones I don’t want to loose yet don’t want to bother.

They all know me,but don’t know ME.

I feel like I’m trying to keep so many doors open that I can’t enter a single one.

Even if I do,will it be the right choice?

Is there a right choice?

This is all my fault,I lost the close ones myself.

I pushed them away or let them go.

And when I fall,I'll hit the ground

they’re too far away to catch me now
I dont usually like poems that dont rhyme but I just needed to get this out of my system. I think im hoping someone sees this but I'm not sure why,I know that noone can help me with this
