Breath love like air, and live
Return from the darkness
Embrace all life as kin
And let peace touch your heart
The saccharine kiss of
Hope can make bitterness
Evolve on cynics' tongues
Leaving an aftertaste
Of disillusionment
Vanquished are the moments
Engulfed in innocence
Life does not let you live
In perfect happiness
Kisses of destiny
Either raze or nourish
A man's deepest beliefs
In pure honesty, I-
Repeat, breath love like air
An acrostic poem

Repeat, breath love like air

I is beautifully written, certain words stand out  "Saccharine  kisses" & "aftertaste of disillusionment" those two phrases go well together & bring back sensory memories.
