"In an Acrostic poem, the first letter of each line, when read from top to bottom, will spell out a message or a name or a word.
In the Acrostic Plus, the first letter of each line in the first stanza, when read from top to bottom, spells out a message or word(s) and in the second stanza, the last letter of each line when read from top to bottom, spells out the rest of the message or additional word(s).
To me, one of the most important things in both the Acrostic and the Acrostic Plus, is that the poem makes sense. The form cannot overrun the meaning. I suppose that’s the case with any form of poetry."
I no longer cry
at couples who snuggle.
managed to finally say, we're through.
Onward and upward
Exhilarated now that good
riddance is realized.
I see my
future as bright. No
more gloom. Adieu.
