       Not your typical love poem. Have a laugh!

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    I'm terrible at writing love poems.
    Somehow I always manage to forget this.
    But I suppose for someone who spends
    unallotted time writing about losing things
    I'm not surprised I find it challenging
    to write about something so completely found.
    It's difficult to write about everything
    when you're used to having absolutely nothing.

    I think that if I was going to write a bad love poem,
    I'd say something about flowers and the weather,
    the colors of seasons and the ocean,
    and maybe I'd mention your eyes.
    However, having no inclinations for
    the naturistic parts of love and
    remembering I've never looked into your eyes,
    I think I must resort to love's other aspects.

    Another way to poorly write a love poem
    is to talk with an abundance of melancholy
    about all we've "been through together" and
    how "all I need" is you, or something else
    melodramatic and loaded with sugary sweet
    romantic clichés about journeys and such,
    using words like "us" and "forever".

    However, I will write neither of those.
    I want to write about what a struggle this is,
    a complicated relationship with complex problems
    that sometimes we dare not face. I have a friend
    who says that a complicated relationship is
    like a cupcake. I'm not exactly sure
    what he meant by that statement,
    but I like cupcakes. So despite everything,
    the trouble we're too cowardly to start,
    the arguments kept at bay, and all
    the differences and conflicting elements,
    I'm really enjoying the frosting and sprinkles.

      This is really good! The end, with the cupcake and sprinkles, is what really makes it. Despite the less than perfect love you describe, the poem feels light, and...cupcakelike. It's a delight read.

    I don't really think it needs much revision, maybe just a bit of tightening, a bit of pruning (like changing "I think that if I was going to write a bad love poem" to "[If] I [were] to write a bad love poem").

    It's good though. Very cute! :)

    Oh, and good luck with the relationship!

      wow so interesting
    you write about how to write a bad love poem and at the same time write a wonderful poem about love
    I love the cupcake drawing, if I had half the talent you did I would be in the national art gallery for years ;)

    not really a lot I can say but good job on this and the symbolism of the cupcake is not long forgotten.
