    poem rater

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by boopy_cupid, Oct 17, 2006.

    this game is really easy. all you do is make up a small poem and post it then the next person rates it and posts another one like this:

    person 1: roses are red violets are blue i think i'm in love with you!
    person 2: 6/10 lisa cherry and little merry are so nice when thier eating rice!
    exc.....

    i'll start:

    cakes and pies
    lakes and lies
    you and me
    can have some tea
    of cakes and pies
    then go swim in the lakes of lies

    People die
    I wonder why
    If peace would come
    The world would be one

    I give you a 6/10

    I'm not so sure if I understand the game but I'll write a short poem I guess... even though I hate poetry and suck at it.

    It's not that I'm wrong.
    you just strung me along -- in territory I don't belong.

    Why are you blaming me?

    You knew this would happen erelong.
    I'm leaving.
    I'm gone.

    Eh... I don't know about you, but I hate it.

    The pain inside
    I cannot hide
    What I feel I can't confide

    7/10

    Trapped and held,
    Fixed to this serious pillow.

    My limbs are not my own,
    I am robbed of being me,
    Lost to a doctor's sticky fingers.

    I would have owned this,
    I should have held on,
    But it slipped silently through.

    6/10

    The telephone begins to ring,
    The toaster has another fling,
    The ants are back, I'll never eat,
    I might as well go back and sleep.

    I'll close my eyes in sleep and sorrow,
    And maybe write some verse tomorrow.

    umm im not good either but ill try:



    friends may abandon you
    but you have best friends too
    People who help you when your lonely or desperate
    Sometimes we may not give each other credit
    But they are there when your feeling blue

    5/10 I suppose.

    Wishy-washy
    Squishy-squashy
    Bloopidy-bloop the jelly fish goes

    In and out
    Up then down
    Jellys highs and lows

    Sting then burn
    Live and learn
    What jellyfish are good for nobody knows!

    When I arise in the morning tis not the sun that awakens me, yet the liveliness and beauty of she. More majestic than words can compare, To compare her to the heaven's would put the stars to shame, Beauty that even the Angel's weep in spite, she is the love of my life. If only our lives together were in sight...

    Eight years. That's how long this thread was ignored. Why did you even go that far back?

    Nothing wrong with waking up an old thread if its a good one

    On your poem 6/10 ... 'angels weep' is a cliche and the 'beauty of she' is an awkward construct.

    A future is stolen
    opportunity laid bare
    bread is denied
    only contempt
    offered to empty hands

    Come on, people. No need to greet a brand-new member with that kind of tone. Let's try to be more welcoming, okay? :)
