Day Three: Acrostic Poem (Poetry)

Day three in the WP Ten Day Poetry Challenge and we are tasked to write an acrostic poem.

Poetry,
Often opaque in delivery
Elusive metaphors
Tormenting – testing – teasing
Readers
Yet, sublimely addictive.

According to the young writers poetry website

An acrostic poem is a type of poetry where the first, last or other letters in a line spell out a particular word or phrase. The most common and simple form of an acrostic poem is where the first letters of each line spell out the word or phrase.
