Conversely we kept the flame at bay
Flickering light of intense decay
Scorching torrid blaze of disarray
Despondently we desire...

Woefully nethertheless in it flew
Weaving spells that imbue
Turning night to sabah blue
Begrudgingly we conspire...

Thoroughly plucking at heart strings
Teasing until the undead sings
Squeezing so it almost stings
Dolefully we acquire...

Endlessly it will ensue
Enthralling mingling of two
Recalling that unique hue
Futilely we let it transpire...

Securely the roots surround the core
Shattering masonry to build rapport
Scattering that once lost fire evermore
...Desire that we last eternally

    The bonds between two people begin long before the physical act. I enjoyed the journey that this poem described. You have a wonderful sense of rhyme and cadence. I love the image: "Securely the roots surround the core, shattering masonry to build rapport..."

    Wow, what a powerful and captivating poem! The use of vivid imagery and metaphors creates such a beautiful and complex portrayal of desire and passion. I especially loved the line "turning night to sabah blue", which painted a stunning picture in my mind.

    As for improvement suggestions, I would recommend adding punctuation and spacing to make the poem easier to read and comprehend. This would also help enhance the flow and rhythm of the piece. Additionally, considering the length of the poem, breaking it up into stanzas could make it more visually appealing and give it a more distinct structure.

    Overall, fantastic job! Your skillful use of language and creativity truly shines through in this piece. Keep up the phenomenal work!
