       This is just a personal quote I made up along the way... Just thought I'd share it with you all ;D. It's pretty straightfoward... I'm not really looking for criticism. Just thoughts maybe.

      hey there... sorry for the delay in response...

    well, your title piqued my interest to click ;)

    although I'm not the greatest in giving titles to my texts, I still think there is a minimum of importance to it... I can't judge the quality of a poem just by its title obviously but it is usually a good indicator of what the poem will be about... or its mood... for me, my own mood is what determines whether I click on a poem to read or not... the title sort of directs my interest not my opinions... it's as far as it goes... it wouldn't make sense to voice an opinion on something solely based on the title... in agreement with what's being expressed here... anyway, rambling again hehe ;) I'll go now... thanks for sharing :)

    also, thanks for taking the time to read and comment on my post... I appreciate it very much :)

    take care *hug* xx

      i'll second that. too many works go unread because someone thinks "well i've read that before" well. no you havnt. you may have read the words. you may have seen the lets. but you have never seen them in this order nor have you heard them from this person. i got a comment today being told that my piece was unoriginal and completely cliché and i wanted to scream. those were my words my thoughts and damnit if the title had nothing to do with it. so many, too many pieces raound here go unread because some one is playing holier than thou when it comes to judgments.
    so yeah. less ranting next time. i just really get pissed off about shyt like this. thanks man. thanks for saying it when the rest of us wouldnt.

      i think the title of a poem means alot. a good poet should be able to give his poems good titles. titles are the poems name. it is what they will be called. people will and should judge poems on their titles. it is the poets job to give the poem a title the poem deserves. i think if a poem has an interesting and imaginative title it shows the poet realy cares about the poem and that means its more likly to be a good poem. well thats how i see it anyways. but i guess you have a point. some realy good poems i have read have had realy dul predictable titles. it depends. sometimes the title fits sometimes it doesnt.

      hey you know what? i have wrote in one of my old poem this line: "not all titles meant the story..." which for me is really true. you cannot tell to a friend that you have read that poem already just by hearing the title... but sometimes titles are made to catch the attention of the wondering reader... it can also be a starter line... an appetiser or some sort.. ehehehe.. but nice point of view!

      i completely agree. there were actually people in this site who base their judgements on shallow reasons. it's irritating how people comment without trying to see the bigger picture.

    good job.

      I agree... as a person who writes poetry. (I mean, look at Shakespears sonnets!) As a reader though, I have to say titles are important. Maybe more so in a story, where a title can really pull several parts together, but the same idea applies to a poem. Plus lets say you're look at an anthology of poem. You don't have time to read them all... do you read "flower" or "Wilted Black Roses"?

      you shouldnt judge by the title, but sometimes when i'm looking through the posts, i do base my choices on the title... ony because there;s certain poetry topics i like and other ones i dont.. like i'm not into i'm gonna cut myself poetry.. so if i see a title that implies this i wont go to it... but then i will randomly choose untitles submissions too... i went to this cause i thought it might be interesting... caught my eye.. but once i see the poem, the title doesnt influence me...
    nice statement..
