Acrostic Distractions

Dancing under moonlight;

Innocence lost,

Somewhere far behind.

Tomorrow’s worry forgotten, to

Redhead dreams tonight.

Another glance,

Catches my eye.

Twists my heart.

Is it love?


Nothing but desire?

    Lol..I keep forgetting to comment before publishing this week. This is such a strong acrostic for that challenge, very surprised it didn't make the winners circle! Well done on this, Shane!

    I can answer that. Does it involve bathing suit parts?
