Trade (an acrostic poem)

This for that is as ancient as any system of commerce

Reliable if both parties have something the other wanted

Although sometimes you needed a larger circle to get the deal done

Donnie wanted that old system to come back into prominence

Eventually, someone would then take his life for something meaningful

Genuine (an acrostic poem)

Gregarious as Gregg was

Everyone who thought they knew him pegged him as extremely shy

Never going to parties or family gatherings

Underneath his calm, cool, and collected mask

It scared him that his friends and family would see the scars there

Now he met Cyndi, and she was close to removing it

Eventually he would show her the real him, but would she stay then?
