Decades drifting,

Disparate dreams,

Devotion diluted…?


Definitely deluded.

Desperation delivers distinctly daunting dilemmas!






Distress directly dictates depths down depression dives…

Demoralizing despair deluges.







Dear’s delicate deeds, demonstrations deal despondency deliverance,

Delightful, decadent daylight dawns!

    So happy that the last line negated all the negatives, and set one upon a road to hope. Really real words here.

    One of the few tautograms that I have read so far that don't just seem like a mess of scrabble words jotted down. Good job on delivering difficult emotions here.

    The first line, "Decades drifting" was sobering. I love this one. Time for an extra heart. 💖
