I wrote this poem for a magazine - it's an acrostic, so you can see the title of the poem if you read down the first letter of each line. It wasn't accepted, but I thought it was such a fun sci-fi poem that I wanted to share it here! It's a weird one, and emphasizes the sci-fi/fantasy side of me rather than romance me!
