Welcome to Acropolis Journal, an online poetry magazine, founded in 2021. Home for temples, ruins, darkness and myth. We love all kinds of poetry, but are particularly drawn to dark, emotional pieces. 

We love poems surging with imagery, your surreal, your gothic, caverns, labyrinths, the depths of the abyss, your grit, your confessional, your shrapnel of memories spun to dark velvet.

We want to read that piece you stayed up writing into the full moon, when the crackling darkness turned to dust. We want that poem you love but keeps getting rejected, any hybrid or strange pieces you can't define. We also like the odd cat poem.
