Vessel (an acrostic poem)

Vehicle for fluids is raised for another toast

Enables waking dreams as you stumble being possessed

Sometimes you can host a multitude of different spirits simultaneously

Such as wine, beer, and hard liquors

Enough visitors that you reach your max occupancy limit, and you’re forced outside your body

Leaving you empty and full of yourself at the same time

Reign (an acrostic poem)

Reach for the crown and rip it off the previous owner’s decapitated head

Embrace the fact that it is your time to be the one

It can’t be hard as evidenced by the person you just dethroned

Go on.  Impose your will upon those below you that don’t know any better

Nothing can possibly go wrong now…

Achieve (an acrostic poem)

Accept with grace that sometimes you will fail

Cherish those moments, no matter how hard they are

Here is where you learn the most

It is akin to putting a puzzle together

Everything was once one picture before being forced to shatter

Vividly the picture can be reconstructed, but the outlines of what happen will always be there

Embrace that change and then reach for the next level

Wisp (an acrostic poem)

Winding through the dark recesses of my mind

I follow the glimmer of an idea as it floats just out of reach

So I shouldn’t have been surprised when I fell into a mental swamp

Pushing me under the murky surface to drown in the fetid cerebral sludge

Leap (an acrostic poem)

 

Leave the ground with gusto and take to the air

Eclipse the sun for those still stuck on the ground

Ascend to heights you never guessed you could reach

Peak and resist coming back down

Contact (an acrostic poem)

Close enough to whisper into her ear

Orlando still hesitated.  He worried how she would react

Never had he been this close to her

To think how long it had taken to plan this out

And now this was his time.  He decided to reach out

Crashing to the ground, he bounced his head off the concrete as he was tackled

To think he had almost licked Taylor Swift!

King (an acrostic poem)

Knowing how to rule with a light touch

Isaac was a benevolent ruler until he tried to reach too far

Now he was holding on for dear life as his realm slipped through his fingers

Giving up the crown was easy after they chopped off his hands
