Bottoms Up: Cheers to A from Me

NaPoWriMo Day 10: I challenge you to write an abecedarian poem – a poem with a structure derived from the alphabet. There are a couple of ways of doing this. You could write a poem of 26 words, in which each word begins with a successive letter of the alphabet. You could write a poem of 26 lines, where each line begins with a successive letter. Or finally, if you’d prefer to narrow your focus, perhaps you could write a poem which focuses on a few letters, using words that repeat them.

Becomes me
Calms my heart and
Despite many prayers it is you who
Ever-ending buzz in my brain
Filled up the n
Garbage that had
Hale all of the
Invite me to simply ex
Just as easily as you
Knowledging my sacredness
Loveliness Ac
My desire for
Never disappointing
Or more deliciousness
Piquing my appetite f
Quenching a thirst while
Rivers unknown
Swim in
Tice me to
Unwinding You en
Vessel for
Without a doubt my favorite
Xciting and kind and
You, I find you absolutely e
Zzzz, I never sleep around
