Question: 
Create your own acrostic.

Avatar
Asked by lucyinthesky

An acrostic poem is a poem in which the beginning of each line starts with a letter, and the first letter of each line spells out a word (which is related to the poem's subject topic).

Create your own acrostic poem and post it here! It can be about any subject you wish - your name, your hobbies and interests, etc. Good luck!

    Of course I'll try writing an acrostic.

    Regarding the topic though… I'll choose myself.

    Envision a person who's a perfect writer.

    No, that's not me at all.

    Does this work? I hope I got the description right.

    Dissolving light…

    Expanded eyes, dilated dreams,

    Loosely held by opening seams,

    Unaccustomed to the glow,

    Duped by all the pomp and show,

    Enraptured…but not quite.

    The relation between the word and the poem's subject is somewhat thin, or subtle, speaking euphemistically. It's there, but you realllly gotta wanna see it!

    Untangle to form a bug-like constellation

    Your illusion is my allusion

    Here I sit with my illusion and your allusion,

    And I still can't see a thing.

    Zen-like is my state of confusion,

    Eyes wide open, mist unnerving.

    Wow, sorry, I meant, "does that mean you don't like, are confused about, my acrostic"? I don't even speak proper English anymore!

    As for your question - never! :)

    Wow, that was an emphatic "never"! The only reason I asked that was because it sounded kinda "spacey", bordering on psychedelic. I thought Lucy really is in the sky :)

    Anyway, I guess we're digressing here. Shall we continue with the acrostics? I can't think of much right now. Why don't you start another one and I'll take it from there.

    Here's a little ditty, a joint effort between MayMay and I:


    Lessons blooming in the hub
    Exams no more a student's curse
    Acuity of mind, inspiration of thought
    Reading, believing; the fervour to write;
    Nocturnes in India flow into Canadian daylight
    Hovering over the sky, a new breadth of knowledge
    Utilization of streaming ideas
    But, alas, who can I trust?

    Alright, here's another one. The beginning of each sentence adds up to spell "postcard".


    Prickles sending toxic nerves
    Often I dream of you
    Sickly nightmares tell of your travels
    Taking photos of your trips
    Carried thoughts float fakely by
    A stamp and smile and sigh and cry
    Realization of
    Dreams to come.

    Frightfully nimble, limbs asunder
    Unabash'd and uncover'd, you surrender
    Circumference of Day, half transpos'd
    Kaleidoscope of Night, I half remember
    Your every note, a song to sing
    On ragged breath, you take to wing
    Under Spell I am, and above Ev'rything

    Do you ever wonder
    If all is how it seems
    Prelude to reality, or
    Sequel to a dream
    Happiness is ephemeral
    Ignite your soul eternal
    To understand the scheme

    That's okay, I always appreciate exercises in creativity and the Ogden Nash reference. Well, at least now I know one more word in Hindi…

    Cut my life into pieces
    Half on your side, half on mine
    Employ entrapment or deception
    Safeguard the return of King nine
    Say, isn't that more than a game?

    Oink Oink, the pigs shout
    Ruling us with dogs as kings
    What's twice the answer
    Emmanuel, to life the universe and everything?
    Love tried, to conquer all and break these chains before
    Love died and left us all, will two plus two make four?

    Rambunctious ramblings resound
    Ostracized for being pleasure-bound
    Careful with that axe, Eugene
    Knowledge is not always the same as sound
    Nether the surface lies the dirt
    Run into all sorts in this line of work
    Ostentatious, outcast or ordinary
    Lazy, lewd, or just plain hurt
    Let it play, I say

    Spied upon the simple fool Jorge
    And made a deal with the devil today
    “Teach me, if you, to play them drums devil
    Ah’ will forever be your slave I will!”
    Now devil smiled and ate him whole Ho! Hey!

    Yessiree I am still alive today
    And this man will yet see the light of day
    Hal-LE-lu-JAH his salvaged soul will cry
    While you and I know everything will die
    Early or late to waste his soul will lay

    Just so you don't accuse me of wrong feet-count again, in the first foot of the second line, "and" is spoken quickly and the stress is on "this". The third line has also been appropriately simplified for understanding the pronunciation.

    So immature at times I feel
    Eerie creature just wants to steal
    Loves himself and all his desires
    Freinds everyone - honest and liars
    I, I, I club and he is the member
    Scrooge is someone now I remember
    Howsthat, thou asks

    Sail forth and find the man's sole isle
    Mere salvaged forms of a trash pile
    In haste, 'tis rubbish, sad and vile
    Living on a back-up file
    Ends their hopes for you to smile

    Kites flew, pockmarking the sky
    Under dragons bellies, did warriors cry
    Ninjas hid amidst farts and excuses of bushes
    Great mists descended to unite heaven and earth
    Furious chopsticks clashed in a battle for dumplings
    Utterly useless the ensuing tale, action lively nevertheless

    Do you recall that simple rule of thumb?
    Existence is cogito ergo sum
    Senses are weak, perception may deceive
    Creator exists if it you conceive
    Accept only that of which you are sure
    Reason however can't reason endure
    The mind is simply imperceptible
    Even though it controls the tangible
    Sir Newton should thank me not the apple

    @Avinash and @avicster: Great job! I don't think I could ever make an acrostic as good as those ones.
