Poetry challenge – Day 4 - acrostic

The acrostic poem - based on a single word with the letters of that word forming the first letter of each line.

Living every day
Or hour or minute
Vying to share this sweet

So sorely does my heart
Ache since you went away.
Death is no beginning.
No clear-cut final end.
Everything merely stops.
Seeking what I have lost lost,
So alone without my love.

Bright slashes of colour
In feathers oh so bold
Remind me of a painting
Daubed in vibrant oils.

Foul noxious odours
Abound from my gut
Ripping out into the silence
That once was undisturbed.
