An acrostic is a piece, usually a poem, in which a particular set of letters, typically the first letter of each line, spells out a word or phrase with special significance to the text.

Killing me softly with her words on screen
Inviting me to her scripted mindset
Always knowing how to set up the scene

Surprising while never breaking a sweat
Opening a window closing the door
Unleashing spiritual personal
Leveraging some knowledge after before

Keeping to her flow of truths circinal
Injecting the right terms into the bend
Answering her mind’s beauty with a smile

Searching for stability to the end
Offering solutions without the guile
Understanding word sources as vital
Learning to provide the rightful title

Nestled in a large cave you suffered less
Every season except for fall’s last day
As the wind turned colder with winter’s dress
Never neglecting to kick you halfway
During a thought of some fresh meat roasted
Entirely for family and friends
Returning from the hunt twice boasted
Thankful not knowing your approaching ends
Humans kept part of your DNA chains
As a souvenir of your last day’s pains
Leaving forty K years since and remains
