A Poem by barleygirl
"

Acrostic: First letter of all lines spell title.

"

Stiletto stilts and chic crafted physique
with bling-crusted digits glittering
and long frosted weave cascading . . .
nibbling caviar and swilling champagne, she
knows current hoity-toity repartee . . .
yet shimmering smoky eyes decline to shine.

There was a sad poignancy in that last line. With all the external trappings, was she really happy?.
You succeded in painting an effective word picture of ambition without a goal.
Acrostics are fun, as long as you don't have to stick to rhyming lines, then they can make you tear your hair..

Okay the vocabulary was stunning... As for the concept, it was very intriguing... At the start I loved how you gave some strong words to show the outside glamour and pride of the lady... I believe we have seen people like that in our real life, they show up like they are happy and "knows everything" kind of attitude but on the inside they are broken.... A very well balanced work and twist in the tale kind of acrostic... The last line was stunning as it left the reader feeling amazed... I enjoyed reading it....

Thanks for stopping by to show your understanding of my message.
all the flamboyant glitter hides a deep sadness, methinks. indeed, the eyes are a window to the soul, they say. I'm sad for this pretty lady.
love your description. I can picture her with my mind's eye and I like what I see.

The picture painted is vivid and very interesting. Life for her is material and shallow. She is bored and probably lonely. Loved and much appreciated this poem. 🌷

Ha, just yesterday I wrote an acrostic myself so to stumble upon an acrostic to begin reading your works is quite the joy for me ^^ I am guessing the Bold lettering removed for a reason?? Thus for those who can't catch it have the description's help??? See I liked the title and then I noticed the number of lines is equal to the number of letters in the Title and thus kinda found out it was an acrostic before i even read it ^^' I then saw the description..... Now moving on to the poem itself, you have weaved a lovely scene in the form of moving images and definitely when one gives this one a read not once would the reader realise that this is also an acrostic unless her/she has keen sense of observing. Some really nice alliterations and some internal rhymes as well. like: "decline to shine" Best part though your last line has left us all wondering why her eyes decline to shine..... So you see you might end up intriguing a few readers who might want to know what's NEXT and WHY?? ^^ Thank you for sharing ^^ I really enjoyed it ^^
