Sestina

My melting heart moulds into a poem of eternal love
Unseen debated origin, made my girl howl fierce
Covered wavy blue, with muddy skin, her voice a melody
Her rhythmic dance with never ending spin, graceful
Lady love's green attire made her even more beautiful
A hat bright and shiny, blue, unbreakable but tender

She brushes my rough face with her fingers so tender
Sweetie, am fully drunk and sinking in your love
Cause of you, even my thoughts and actions are beautiful
Her passionate stare, piercing my heart with fierce
She would move her green blue body, so graceful
Doubtless, our ceaseless love is a calming melody

When sad she comforts my soul singing divine melody
When joyful she stands by with a kiss so tender
When jaded she entertains me, her performances graceful
When harms drown me, embraces me with love

When left helpless, defends enemies with fierce
I glow in her love, my face nowadays beautiful
Ugly I felt, she said, to my eyes you are beautiful
Hid my hoarse voice, but to her it’s a melody
Worried of terrible temper, she loved when I was fierce
Ashamed once cheated, she found a heart tender
Inferior to her, she packed the space with love
Expressed my gratitude, for my life really graceful

She rewarded me with a smile, extremely graceful
Overwhelmed, I admired her snow white attire, beautiful!
Some days she showered and made me drench in love
Happily gifting flowers dancing and singing melody
Frightened she is, felt her shivering body so tender
Angry she wore dull outfit, walking fast and fierce

On witnessing evil, she answered peacefully but awfully fierce
Noticing kind people, she nurtured them fairly graceful
When friends visited, she greeted them with warm smile so tender
Shared her assets with me, which were strikingly beautiful
Midst, she made my immortal life a cheerful melody
Her muddy praying hands protects me with love

Oh fierce lady, our children are destroying your assets, once beautiful
I am helpless; I wasn’t able to protect you, my graceful melody
Your tender serene beauty in decline, yet you are still my love

Comment Structurally and artistically, this is a formidable achievement - but why does correct punctuation always pose such an insuperable barrier to such talented writers!
