Alliteration is a rhetorical device combining similar sounding words, often in twos, together. According to virtual salt (http://www.virtualsalt.com/rhetoric6.htm#Alliteration), alliteration draws the reader's attention in and positions the words in their mind.

Let's use two words together.

Example:

Busy bees.

Failing forever
Life's love
Vanished in vanity

All alone
My Muted mind
With Wasted words
Beaten broken
Worthless, wordless
Forever fallen

(The best alliterations have the sound of the entire first consonant cluster the same; "black book" is technically not as good an alliteration as "bleach blonde". And it's the sound that matters - "Chilling Tchaikovsky" is exact alliteration, even though the consonant clusters aren't spelled the same. And it's difficult with vowels: "Alvin arrived after Anne" usually sounds all run together so that you can't hear the beginning of each word.)
