    if you need definitions (you probably will).
    My attempt at the ABC style. First letter of each line matches to the corresponding alphabet letter. Line 1 = A, line 2 =B, etc.

    dotsThe ABC's of Ennuidots

    Acedia rests heavy on my tired soul. I find myself
    bereft of creativity, inexplicably inserting
    cesuras into my poems that never quite pick up again.
    Defervescence of a poetic fever has left me wrung and
    edentulous, incapable of even the softest mental meals.
    Feticide occurs daily, aborting my undeveloped thoughts,
    gestations unable to carry through to term.

    Haplology has gone unchecked and left me wordless.
    Ideas flee my untender ponderings, leaving behind only
    jet moods, empty pages and a large bottle of
    kirach, slipping smooth down my throat
    like I still wish my pen would slip across my paper,
    miraculously filling the blue lines with
    new, previously unimagined thoughts.

    Obtunding days fill up this dreary life,
    perpetually extending into not-so-vast horizons.
    Quod, I call it, my cellmates every man who ever
    rusted in the dissatisfaction of wasted hours and
    sullied their hands with the ink of recycled emotions,
    trammeled by their own inexplicable need to
    understand and be, impossibly, understood.

    Veer away, you would-be poets.
    Waste time not on words or the romantic idea of
    xiphoid pens and the power to change the world.
    Your own flowery words will appeal to you, but ultimately
    Zion will be no closer than when you started.

      holy smokes!

    now ive seen a few of these ABC piece before but usually a line starts with A and ends with a full stop and the next line with B and ends with a fullstop and the next line C...

    this is impressively done. to the point that if you hadnt have pointed out the ABC quality of this piece i would never have noticed.

    the way you wove this piece together is brilliant. seriously stunning. and the way it still means something... more than something even makes me jealous.

    your use of vocab is brilliantly extensive and the way you have phrased yourself is immaculate.

    really... all i have is praise for you... wow.
