I just love love love acrostics. You do know what acrostics are, don’t you? An acrostic is a poetic form in which the first letter of each line, when read in sequence, spells out a word.
What I love about them is that there is no meter, no rhyme scheme. If you’re feeling prolific, you can go ahead and write long lines; if you feel up for a challenge, you can limit yourself to a certain meter or number of words per line. Now, traditionally, you aren’t supposed to punctuate the end of each line, but since I cannot stand not correctly punctuating my poetry, I suppose it’s okay.
Satisfied with lies;
Hone it, even.
Plays with fate—
