    Just in general really doesn't have to be lovey dovey just wondered what the majority thought of guys as poets in general

    it's been a very long time since anyone tried to punch me

    Romantic....different strokes for different folks

    Don't really like poetry unless it has real meaning. If it is slushy and sentimental, I steer clear of it. The poets of the past (Milton, Wilde, Hardy and Wordsworth) cannot be considered wimps.

    wimpy...... i like guys who punch guys who write poems:p



    :giggle::giggle::giggle:

    poems can be about anything not just 'lovey dovey' things, take this one i wrote for example.....

    A chance I may be free.

    In the shell of my entrapment,
    Sitting by my cell,
    Held against my will, I hate,
    My own private hell,

    Over there are all the warlords,
    Plotting off my fate,
    Filled with lost ambition,
    Transferred into hate,

    And I see a light above it all,
    As small as it may be,
    A glimmer of hope,
    A flicker of life
    A chance I may be free,

    The sacred hall of ages,
    Echo with lost words,
    Policies and stages,
    We gather there in herds,

    The capsulated routine,
    Of similarity,
    Hacking at my aura,
    I hide myself and scream,

    And I see a light above it all,
    As small as it may be,
    A glimmer of hope,
    A flicker of life
    A chance I may be free,

    My body has deserted me,
    My mind is on the floor,
    The primal instinct fills my veins,
    The warlords are no more,

    Regret is such an easy word,
    But not all in life is hell,
    As I realise my life,
    Is lost, in a crueller cell,

    So I saw a light
    Above it all,
    Bright as bright can be,
    I’ve lost all hope,
    I have no life,
    I will never be free.

    Thanks for the input, yeah I've been challenged to write all sorts from giant purple potatoes to fibreglass. There is still a bit of a stigma about poets.

    What about the old adage "actions speak louder than words"? Thats showing they can talk the talk but can they walk the walk and back it up?

    I've got magnetic poetry on my fridge and one bf used to rearrange the words all the time, was always a good giggle and kinda sweet of him. I think i want the best of everything, perhaps thats why i'm single lol

    "I wandered briskly down the road, and suddenly stepped on a toad" any good?

    Mine OH can write poetry, but won't write it for me - so at least you had "the best" for a while:thumbsup:

    Not the worst i've ever heard

    What about this:

    "Oh frettled gruntbuggly thy micturations are to me | As plurdled gabbleblotchits on a lurgid bee
    Groop I implore thee, my foonting turlingdromes
    And hooptiously drangle me with crinkly bindlewurdles,| Or I will rend thee in the gobberwarts with my blurglecruncheon, see if I don't!"

    Ive been known to write the odd ditty, but thats when the walls and fences seperated me and my "beloveds" of the time to keep them sweet, walls and bars leave plenty of time to fill

    You think he saw us?
    that be....dinosaurus?
    one tried to explain,
    but deeply in vain,
    that a thesaurus was not a creature from the triassic period.

    Lol i had a go:

    The Great Divide:

    Good day lesser being
    i must say
    Bad luck is not the only thing
    you bring today

    its not that i dont care anymore
    its just that i never did

    you tried to grasp your life
    it slipped away
    although i wouldnt care
    either way


    Money, knowledge, you know its true
    its the great divide between me and you

    its about something!
