Preeeetty Bad Poetry

Feather's picture

Well, it's my first poem, so I have to start somewhere right? (Even though it does sound awful.)

I know that this is silly
I know that you don’t care
Rather than hear me tell you how I feel
You’d prefer to be anywhere.

The truth is pretty stupid
No it’s not! I refuse to lie
I have to say what I have to say
I’d rather tell you now and die.

Than live a thousand years
Knowing I’d never said
The words that right here, right now,
Are spinning inside my head.

I have a small confession
No, I didn’t do anything wrong
Unless it’s a crime to love you
A crime to have felt this way so long.

There I’ve said it; it’s all out
The words still floating in the air
I wouldn’t take it back, even if I could
At least you know I care.

And you can hate me with all your heart
My feelings will always stay true
And if you ever need me
I’ll be waiting, always here for you.

Acck, *hack cough* gagggg. At least it rhymes to some degree.

Hey, it's really not that bad...definitely a good start. There's no need to put yourself down by saying it's bad. Writing, especially poetry, is all about letting your soul fly onto the page and not caring what other people think. Poetry, above all other things, is fearless. Just keep on writing and don't be afraid of what comes's yours; cherish it.

“Never forget! The higher we soar, the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly.”
- Friedrich Nietzsche

Writing, poetry or prose,

Writing, poetry or prose, takes practice like every other skill. I'd say you have a fine start. Keep up the good work.

What is bad poetry?

Most people think their own poetry is bad, so don't discourage yourself! Keep writing, because poetry is the one form of writing that nobody else in the world has the right to critique!

Poetry is the best way to vent,or just express yourself. I think your poem seems like a fine start to your writing:)

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent-Eleanor Roosevelt

hey that wasn't bad...don't put yourself down like that, just like everyone ^up there said. poetry is a way to express yourself no matter what anyone says, no one has a right to criticize what you write because it's part of you..but btw i liked it :)
