[dropcap style=”normal or inverse or boxed”]A[/dropcap] is for Apple
[dropcap style=”normal or inverse or boxed”]B[/dropcap]ut not for Macintosh, but the apple that’s
[dropcap style=”normal or inverse or boxed”]C[/dropcap]runchy, juicy and
[dropcap style=”normal or inverse or boxed”]D[/dropcap]elicious.
[dropcap style=”normal or inverse or boxed”]E[/dropcap] is for Elephant, the one I
[dropcap style=”normal or inverse or boxed”]F[/dropcap]ind in my room, pink not
[dropcap style=”normal or inverse or boxed”]G[/dropcap]reen, but always waiting and
[dropcap style=”normal or inverse or boxed”]H[/dropcap]iding.
[dropcap style=”normal or inverse or boxed”]I[/dropcap] is for I, me and myself, always
[dropcap style=”normal or inverse or boxed”]J[/dropcap]oking, although I’m
[dropcap style=”normal or inverse or boxed”]K[/dropcap]rying inside
[dropcap style=”normal or inverse or boxed”]L[/dropcap]ooking and searching for
[dropcap style=”normal or inverse or boxed”]M[/dropcap]e, the real me

[dropcap style=”normal or inverse or boxed”]O[/dropcap]n the outside, looking in.
[dropcap style=”normal or inverse or boxed”]P[/dropcap]erhaps my real

[dropcap style=”normal or inverse or boxed”]V[/dropcap]ampire shaded skin, lies the heart of a
[dropcap style=”normal or inverse or boxed”]W[/dropcap]oman, but the soul of a Man, not the
[dropcap style=”normal or inverse or boxed”]X[/dropcap]enophobe trying to keep

Today’s National Poetry Writing Month prompt was to write an abecedarian poem – a poem with a structure derived from the alphabet. I chose to write a poem starting each line with a letter of the alphabet versus just one word in each line. I’ve used this structure before and I absolutely adore using this structure.
