Make fun of my poem

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by jrthebassguy, Jul 9, 2003.

  1. I finished this about 5 minutes ago, if you can't tell by the poem I'm not exactly the happiest camper right now. Anyways, tell me what you think....what you like, what you hate, whatever. I don't care as long as its constructive. I didn't want to follow any rhyme scheme, so if you notice any rhymes...its all accidental/coincidental. I am, however, proud of this poem.


    A deficiency has been set in place
    The shortcomings of the harvest come in
    A tragic flaw and a mourning of a current event
    Catastrophic and to my disappointment

    An unabridged story of a broken heart
    I've had my place in a few
    But now as this failed story ends
    I still like the tragedy in you

    I've been let down
    This misfortune's burden heavier than the last
    I struggle to find an inch of hope left
    For a better road to happiness

    It's the feeling of loss that hurts
    And those dreams that you come back
    And this flood of sorrow rains down
    Until these feelings will lay to rest

    But this is something I must embrace
    Something that I shamefully must admit as truth
    Through all the shortcomings of what has been
    I like the tragedy in you

    I can't make fun of a work of art. That was truly touching:) If you ever want to share poetry then feel free to p/m me.

    Back, forth
    Back, forth
    Ironing for perfection

    Forth, back
    Forth, back
    Ironing in both directions

    Back, forth
    forth, back
    Ironing in the morning

    Forth, back
    Back, forth
    Ironing before Folding.

    well, I liked it :meh:

    See I have a problem with sad poetry, It just doesn't do it for me, for me, poetry has to be simple and creative, while still having a deeper meaning.

    I think it's because too much sad poetry is just written by saps, and only saps appreciate it...the type of people that troll around and stuff. I hate those people.

    I found that amazing. The use of trochaic (sp?) and iambic syllables was astonishing. The extended metaphor of "ironing" is what real touched me. IT shows that when we are "ironing" the creases out of our lives, we don't always know where we are headed. :D

    Thanks PoT :)
  8. My analysis:
    Very good execution of a tired cliche.

    That's just my taste in poetry though. It is well written, I'm just not into the whole "woe is me" style.

    JR...that was touching.

    WR, did you realize you could substitute Ironing for Shagging and the poem would make complete sense?

    Maybe that could be a song's second verse.
  11. How could anyone make fun of that?

    It's very good.

    I'd just like to know - what was her name?

    Hang in there, buddy, this will pass. ;)

    Believe me.
