Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
My drive went dead,
Backups were due.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Words from my head,
I’m left with few.

Short stories. 2/3 of the way done w/ my first novel. Currently getting my MFA in creative writing at Emerson College in Boston.

nice man,I had to write one on weather in english last year,and was supposed to be funny so I wrote

It’s a beautiful day
I won the lottery
Katrina just came
So now I live in poverty

I got an “A”,my teacher was laughing so hard.

I wrote some poetry for while. I actually wrote my first for a girl for her birthday present since I figured she never got a poem from any of her crappy boyfriends. It wasn’t romantic, and was sort of a joke, but gawd what an intellectual whore I was.

Writing was actually very cathartic during a period of depression. Some of those poems were pretty dark. Writing is very good therapy. I highly recommend it.

I wrote a piece that was just absolutely fucking brilliant, but an ex- friend offered some suggestions on it, which I mistakenly took. Now he claims HE wrote the poem. That piece of work caused me more grief than my meth freak ex-girlfriend, so I write very little anymore.

I did write one after having a nightmare several weeks ago. It’s called “Despair is a HotDog”. Some of my stuff is just plain odd, obviously.

Sorry, just rambling.

Thou art so cruel
I strive and strive
And work so hard
But still you will not
Show me

Thank you,when I first started most were about girls(easy to get a train of thought going…hehe)and gradually I was able to write about other stuff.

He is hard to live with
He is stubborn
He is cruel
He is wrong at times
He cares about his hair more than me
He hates it when I talk
He always talks about his bod

But…

He is mine :slight_smile: <3 oooo !

I was serious…if you wanna post something you made up 3 minutes ago then go do it somewhere else
