The Acrostic Poem Game
What is it? The acrostic poem game is a game I thought for people who love to make poetry. Every week or two, everyone will be given a new word to acrostic.
How Do You Play? Simple! Everyone is allowed, but please don’t yell out any poetry hate or advertise your poetry books here. And if you’re new, feel free to jump in any time. Be aware, however, that there are judging deadlines and that late poem submissions will not be counted.
You start with the word given in that week. You can make up to three poems for that word (please keep them in the same post). Your poem can be any length as long as its within the acrostic poem format, but keep it to the theme of the chosen word. After the deadline, your poems will be judged and a winner chosen to be displayed in a poem book on my profile.
This Week’s Word: Phobias
People staring in
How they never see the truth
Over and over again
But I can never speak to you
I can’t shake the fear that clutches me
And I can’t speak the truth to my friends
Someone save me from my phobias within
Phobias all around
Holding me too far down
Old memories turned anxiety
By the way
Irrational I know it is
And crazy, yes, my phobia is
Somehow, though, I just can’t shake it
Old and young
Irrational fear of all people near
And panic grasps me for this fear
Sorry, I have anthropophobia
Deadline Is March 9th
