Hello dear readers,
Wish you all a very happy weekend! I’ll be doing some travelling over the next few days.. but will definitely be trying my best to stick to 8 lines everyday!
This is one of those types of poetry that is easier to show you by example, rather than to confuse you by explaining it 🙂
Ill give you guys an additional surprise once you’re done reading the poem !!
As it unfolds
His heart had made no space for love- that was the honest truth
Until the day he realised, it was time to think things thru.
Surely, this was the girl he’d met, in his fanciful dreams,
Beauty that she emanates- in that light, the rest seem drab.
Approachable and lovable, she was his heaven-sent manna,
Nothing he’d ever felt before was even worth a mention.
Decisions were made for a lifetime, nothing was as planned-
Sometimes we’re just actors and our stories unfold in parts.
That’s right! 🙂 In an acrostic poem, the first letter of each line when read vertically, spells out a word.
Now I promised you a surprise, right? Did you figure it out yet? 🙂
Check out the last letter of each line as well. This would be a double acrostic! Making even a semi-sensible poem with this structure was definitely not easy, let me tell you.
P.S: I showed this poem to my husband, and he said that its only natural that I have husbands written on both sides of the poem, because husbands are always protecting their wives (words, here?) How cheesy but adorable !
