Caged (an acrostic poem)

Closed off and hurting, licking his wounds

As guards paraded around the bars like small moons orbiting him

Gideon smiled, wiping away the blood from his nose

Everyone thought he was doomed to die at sunrise

Didn’t understand he needed to be close, that he allowed himself to be captured…  Their screams started

Glitter (an acrostic poem)

Giving those diabolical miniature flakes of metal in their prison

Little shakes with an evil grin on my face

If you hadn’t had crossed the line it wouldn’t have come to this

The trap set, I just sit back with the airhorn and count down

Eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one.  The horn screams through the night

Resulting in you throwing off your covers, releasing the pile of sparkle into your entire everything.

Corn (an acrostic poem)

Crispy fluffy white popped kernels pour out of the kettle

Obscene amounts of liquid butter soon flow over the alabaster landscape slightly seasoned with salt

Releasing that signature smell in the air that screams movie time

Now for the show that is me consuming of this mountain of magnificence

Crash (an acrostic poem)

Clicking the mouse as fast as she could

Rachel laughed as she blew up three of her competitors

All she needed to do now was make her sprint to home base

Suddenly frames started dropping almost as fast as her f bombs

Her screams echoed as the screen went black

Broken (an acrostic poem)

Belief alone wasn’t going to get Marcus through this

Reality was, he was going to lose something, and he just needed to decide what

Ordinarily he would just look out after old number one, but this time…

Kristen had changed his life so much he owed her almost everything

Eventually he pulled the lever and walked away

Never acknowledging Kristen’s screams
