The skirmish prompt was Over the Edge. I spend the whole hour writing an overclever, overwrought over-alphabetical poem. FAWMit and move on.

Overawed at first sight
Her in her overalls and overbite
I was overcautious but I overcame
Heart in overdrive, I called her name
A little overexcited, overeager
Couldn't come across overfamiliar (Awkward spaces overfilled)
Her hair was overgrown
Whispered, so none would overhear
Her Overimaginative tales,
I was overjoyed, It was overkill
Our hands overlaid as we overlooked the view
But it might have been overmuch
Hearts cooled overnight.
I was overoptimistic, and overpowered
I over questioned what I felt.
We overreached and over-reacted
Oversexed, we overstayed
We were overtaken, overtired
Poets themes are overused
Looking for the one is overvalued,
Overwilling and overwhelmed
We overemphasize our exes.
But we were overyoung
