A Poem About How To Write A Poem

by xTheEcstasyOfSuicidex   Jun 25, 2007

Please keep an open mind when reading this. I am not putting anyone down; I just sat down and wrote and this is what I got. However, I love the outcome and I hope you have an open enough mind to love it too.

First you start out with a controversial topic (even if they're bad, you'll get more comments!),
Then you pick a really catchy phrase like: "Dear Diary, today I just want to vomit."
Surely it will "drag" them in and make them cling to your every words; you're hoping it would,
And then use really big words that confuse people; they'll give you a higher rating to act like they understood.

Now, you'll probably be called a bit "emo" for having a "diary", but "Fcuk you!" you'll say!
(Then you'll pick up your "journal {or that's what [you] call it} and write about your "terrible" day;)
These people can't judge you because you write about them, right?
(You've got a lot more coming to you if you think that; you're pants might be a little [too] tight.)

But after you've got your catchy phrase and controversial topic with a hint of cliche,
You'll need to dash in a bit of sarcasm to keep them hooked (kind of like the drugs you were on today).
But as you do all this, you need to remember to stay on topic while you tell them about it all;
And maybe you'll even make a few new friends that cut deeper than you; maybe now you won't fall.

With your new friends -- the pen, the paper -- you'll cry to it, you've found,
But then as you pour your heart out and post it; the people will proceed to tear you down.
It's hard being a poet; you'll just have to be will to take that bound,
No matter how much you're teased, you're poetry willing always be around.

Remember to start out with a good message and leave a crisp moral behind:
"There's more to life that sorrow and there is no button for rewind."
But you always have to start like you finished; with a really catchy phrase:

"Don't let anyone tell you how to write; write your own way."
