Negativity (Acrostic)

Nightmares, perhaps a chemical imbalance

Edge me ever closer to the precipice.

Granted, I have had a favorable life;

Adorned with friends, family and children,

Time, health, home, finances have been kind.

In spite of all this, happiness eludes me.

Venom spews from my lips quite freely

Instigated by a darkness living deep within.

This I must tame if I am to find lasting peace

Yet I question daily, my ability to do so.

  1. I love reading acrostics! I tried writing one once, but it didn’t work. I asked Sreejit (my son) for help but his answer just scrambled my brain. Maybe I will learn how to write poetry in the future!
