“travel the waves of my
undercurrents, part my
vanity”

Love those lines. They flow so seamlessly that’s it’s so easy to forget the acrostic at work here. I think you did an excellent job of incorporating the challenge into this poem. Without knowing to look for it, that alphabet on the left might be completely overlooked. The words don’t feel forced to accommodate it.
