Acrostic Poetry Acrostic Poetry is where the first letter of each line spells a word. The title of the poem is the word that you choose. (At least a 7 letter word) • Example #1: • Heartbreaking • He broke my heart • Every piece, shattered • All I wanted was his love • Real, as he promised • True, as mine for him • But he walked away • Right in the middle of paradise • Every beat of my heart • Aches for his love • Keeping the flame aglow • I will wait by the light • Never losing the hope • God will send him back to me
