We are doing these in school, Cinquains are similar to haikus but like this:

Line 1 : 2 syllables, names subject.
Line 2 : 4 syllables, describes subject.
Line 3 : 6 syllables, describes action.
Line 4 : 8 syllables, decribes feeling.
Line 5 : 2 syllables, describes synonym.

Acrostic poetry is where the first letter of each line forms a word vertically, the word is usually the subject of the poem.

I wondered if anyone had any good ones?
I haven't been manicial all these years I have been in love! It is the exact same dreadful feeling.

I wrote this sh*t Acrostic Poem about here..

Voices of an internet generation
Egotistical sarcastics
Ghastly depressives v's hyper lovlies
Even I come here a lot,
Threads about everything and nothing
A forum for the dissaffected,
Beautiful minds and beautiful people.
Leave all brain power at the door upon
Entering here!
Revolutionaries skivers and alcoholics
Even ones in training still,
Voyeurs exhibitionists and there friends
Only came here to pass the time
Leave hours later, now addicted.
Until another arguement sees someone leave,
There is a strange peacefulness
In these threads and
On TV is Megazine,
Not that you have to be into that here.
I haven't been manicial all these years I have been in love! It is the exact same dreadful feeling.

I think this is a Cinquain:

The Pig,
handsome in wig,
vigorously acting,
believes he is bloody Mac beth,
Old Ham.


(If I dont put the space in Mac beth it says the scottish play and ruins the poem, the filter here is mad.)
I haven't been manicial all these years I have been in love! It is the exact same dreadful feeling.
