Winning Poems - Competition no 29: Write an acrostic poem in memory of a lost loved one

*VLADISLAV by Spades Master


V lade (rhymes with ďbladeĒ, short for vladislav) was my partner and best friend

L iving a secret life together, the heart loves what the heart loves

A ids killed Vlade in 2000, we savored his birthday five days before the end

D eath was what i yearned for afterwards - hey, it was what it was

I ím sorry iím not coping well, at times it seems too much

S even years together was way too short, but i wouldnít trade it for the world

L ove was so strong it sometimes hurt - i miss his laughter, his smile, his touch

A score and two years later, my grief has not yet unfurled

V ivid still are our memories together, iíll always cherish them forever and ever

Rebel DJ by * Sassy_Angel *

*R*ebels we became here at Goldtoken. Remembering 21 years ago we met at IYT and moved to GoldToken.

*E*very day, every year our friendship grew from playing online games. Who would have guessed

*B*elieving in each other and giving respect and caring about what happens in each others lives.

*E*very day since Sept 2022 when you went off line, saying send some game invites.. To never seeing your name again on my game sheet

*L*ove you sweet lady, miss you more than you can know

*D*onna Jean my Rebel friend.. I fear your life has ended here on earth. Never being able to say GOODBYE and I love you friend.

*J*ust know I miss you and oh how I wish I could have said goodbye.. Just know you will always be in my heart.. Till we meet again at Heaven's Gate
