there are millions of poems
detailing the beauty of another’s eyes,
but your eyes, my love,
put all their cherry-picked words to shame.

ew, that verse is disgusting.
way too sappy.
I’m no good at love poems.
okay, hold on, let me
just start over.

you’re freaking excellent

no.

shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
thou art more lovely and more temperate

wait.
i can’t take credit for that.
sonnets aren’t my style,
and anyway,
shakespeare beat me to the punch
four hundred some years ago.

uh, i mean, you’re funny
and really cute, like
i seriously love your eyes
because there’s meaning in there
somewhere.

and, and, you make me laugh.
you’re so hilarious.
and I have the drawing you gave me
two years ago, still hidden
folded up in my notebook.

plus, i mean, you’re everything to me.
no big deal, right,
considering the fact that we never
really speak anymore.
it’s cool.
i’m fine.
really.

oh my god that doesn’t
even sound like a poem.

fuck you.
my words have failed me
trying to capture you.
nothing sounds right

no shit. this poem is going
absolutely nowhere.

hey.
i just wanted to say that
you give me butterflies
in my stomach
like a tornado

that is so cliche wow

maybe i’ll just cut the crap
and let you know that

i love you.
lolwhut

 the other day, someone asked me why i never write about personal romance. this, this right here, is why. for two hours i tried to write about this guy, and then it just became a big aahdsfglhjabk that isn't even poetry. i was going to scrap it, but after the reaction this poem got, I'm going to keep it. i only posted it because i thought it was kinda funny. ;P

EDIT: FRONT PAGE YOU GUYS GOT ME TO THE FRONT PAGE AND Y'ALL ARE CRAZY BUT I TOTALLY LOVE YOU FOR IT

I think this should be in "Urban & Spoken Word", because damnit but I can hear someone ranting this out loud as I read. It feels original and ah, there's this familiar desperation, the constant "I feel this but I don't know the words to it" that is running through this.

It starts out as Not-A-Love-Poem and ends up being quite the opposite. I don't know, really, but it's good. Excellent work :love:

I think somebody else said the same thing. I'll probably change it some day when I stop being so lazy. :giggle: Yeah, it is pretty much just me ranting. I have such a hard time writing about people I care about. 

Aw, thank you so much! I'm glad you like it!

homigoodness, this is beautiful. xD <3 I love it!!

made me laugh, and that about sums up how perfectly it is to try and write about your loved one. What else can you say but the cliches?
