PROMPT: March Grab Bag

an acrostic poem (in which each letter spells out a word or phrase) with your username (by BriRiley)

Laughter springs from my stomach and I am
Astonished by magical rays of light and I never try to 
Tinker with the shadows that 
Appear at night
But they always seem claw at me

Oh gosh, this turned dark real quick! I didn't mean to make it like this!!!

    Wow! This is so powerful! I love how it starts off so pretty and beautiful and then it gets dark and the last line kind of leaves off so emotional! The beginning part seems to rhyme and then the ending is just there, like the shadows, just an extra- unwanted and I think that was just super powerful! RE: I'm glad you could relate to it :)

    Haha that awesome! And usually what happens to me when I write something dark XD and did you mean to say claw at the end? Or clear? If you did mess up at least you didn’t mess up your name XD lol

    haha I feel like the same thing happens to me when I write--I'm always writing about crying for some reason?
    Anyway, this poem really caught my eye! IT was so good! I loved it :)
