Alphabet Soup

I saw this idea somewhere a few weeks ago, where you write a poem with each line starting with the next letter of the alphabet.

I have hunted around to see if I can find where I saw the idea so I could give proper credit but I haven’t been able to find it. If anyone knows or spots it, please let me know so I can reference the site.Alphabet








All I need is to be understood,

Be appreciated for what I can offer

Coming only when you need me is not good enough

Dumping your problems on me

Enough is enough

Forget that there ever was an ‘us’

Go on with our lives

Holding no grudges

I am moving on

Just stop ringing and calling around

Keep away from me

Leave me alone

My mental health is worth more to me than you are

Not that there was ever any future to this

Or any chance of success

Put me out of your mind

Quiet time is what I need so I can think

Reason must be applied

So be it

There will be other opportunities for love

Until then I’ll be OK

Virtually alone

Without love but without your harmful words

Xyster filing at my heart

You are a good man but not my good man

Zip, nada, nothing more to come – it’s over between us


OK, OK I beg your forgiveness for this tripe dear readers. It’s harder than you think it will be. I challenge you to give it a go – go on and see if you can do better :-)


  1. What a great idea! I will definately put it on the to do list, I have a few projects I am working on myself at the moment and my brains are in danger of melting. But I will post it once I get to it.
    Reminds me of a Tupperware party, where home made Bailey's was involved, a competition using the alphabet. I got disqualified. No sense of humour some Tupperware Dealers.

  2. lol Daze - no sense of humour will never be your problem

  3. Put a stamp on your own life. That's yours and yours alone. Everyone else is just a visitor. They may camp in your life, but still, you're doing it alone in the end. Make the best of it.

  4. Wise words sage tattooed one, I believe.

  5. I loved it.
    Sad but exhilarating at the same time.
    I may have to do an A to Z myself.

  6. Yes quite a cathartic mechanism Bob. Releasing.

  7. These are some really wise words!!! Thanks for sharing this!!!

  8. Lou, very telling and must've been something you've been needing to say very badly. I'm glad you were able to put it all to words and release it.

    You are creative, clever and quite clear with your intent.

    Appreciate you sharing this.


  9. Pretty good there, Lou! One of these days, maybe I'll give it a go.


Make my day and leave a comment. C'mon you can do it.
