Grate them like cheese, these
Hushed memories, so I no longer
Obsess, on my perforated chest,
Scrape them off of my plate, no    
Time to waste, Sorrow

    Oh wowee! This sure is very unique, Susan! I never even thought of it that way but now that you've mentioned it, I think it's very fitting! Way to go with this acrostic! I find it so cool how you did it, flowed very well I think and I enjoy it very much when the words in an acrostic doesn't seemed forced :D
