Mermaid- Acrostic


𝐌   en were her obsession
𝐄    very wink was a pleasure 
𝐑    eeling them in like a
𝐌   ighty fisherman with bait
𝐀    stounding  was her voice
𝐈      ncredible  was her beauty
𝐃    eadly was her lure

𝐌   ighty Sailors fell prey
𝐄    ach time she sang
𝐑    eaching out with dulce tones the
𝐌   ermaid  was the bait
𝐀    nd out jumped a shark
𝐈     nto the mighy air 
𝐃   evouring the  Sailor 

𝐌   aybe that was her destiny
𝐄    ach  Sailor broke her heart
𝐑    ealizing  she had been cursed
𝐌   aybe if she had human legs
𝐀    t least she could've been loved 
𝐈     nstead she was the bait for the
𝐃    eadly Demon Shark


𝐌   ermaids have a heart
𝐄     ach one is unique
𝐑     omance  lives in their soul
𝐌    aybe if they weren't cursed
𝐀    nd they had human legs
𝐈      ncredible  love they would feel
𝐃     esired instead  of feared

      It's all in the swish of your mermaid's tail.

          Such a beautiful multi-acrostic
          My mind kept playing β€œthe little mermaid” very engaging tale you wrote with your pen

              Wow this is very interesting. I've learnt something new about poetry writing styles. Thank you.

              • Dove

                Glad you learned a new poetic format!
                I am a structural poet! I like trying different forms! Sonnets are my favorite
