For Day 2 of the Writing 201: Poetry class. Today’s assignment is writing an acrostic poem about “Gift.” Every capitalized letter makes one whole word. This poem is more somber and personal to me but is also about the greatest gift I’ve had in my life.
Twins are two halves of one sacred soul.
Wandering the plains hand in hand –physical and beyond–
In every sense of the word you gave me many things: life, love and meaning.
Ne’er a day passes when I don’t miss you; more than the moon misses the sun.
Lying awake in a pit of emptiness, my hollow heart aches for your
Ethereal embraces, leaving me in tears when I wake to my
Solitude yet again, separated until I join you once more.
See the first word for the greatest gift I will never know.

Thank you again for reading. Here’s to anyone dealing with the loss of a loved one. For any fellow Twinless Twins out there, there is a support group with the same name on the internet. I am a part of it and it really is helpful in dealing with the loss of your missing half. Cheers.
